Linguine with Littleneck Clams & Genoa Salami


  • 3/4 pound linguine
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 30 littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup bottled clam broth
  • 3 ounces sliced Genoa salami, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the linguine and cook until it is al dente. Drain the linguine.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper, clams and wine and bring to a boil. Add the clam broth, cover and cook over moderate heat until the clams open, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the linguine, salami and parsley to the clam sauce and toss over low heat until combined. Transfer the linguine to shallow bowls and serve immediately.
