  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 6.5 ounce can chopped clams
  • 2 14-ounce cans Mutti finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1- cup Mutti tomato puree
  • 2 tablespoons Mutti tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5 cups cooked whole grain linguini


  • In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium hit until it starts to sizzle. Add the garlic and let it cook until it becomes fragrant, about 2 minutes. It doesn't take long for the garlic to cook so keep an eye on it to prevent it from burning.
  • Stir in the juice from the canned clams (reserve chopped clams for the end), chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the clams and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Serve over hot whole grain linguine with grated cheese if desired.
