Easy White Clam Sauce

I have made this recently and it is super tasty. Thanks to Slick's mom and the 2000 Snow's Great Calm Cook-Off Cookbook. I wonder how she got the recipe in the cookbook... hmmmm.

Easy and Tasty White Clam Sauce

2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup olive oil- I used basil flavored and it was super tasty
1 T Butter
2 6.5 cans Snow's chopped clams drained. RESERVE JUICE.
1/2 c dry white wine
1 T chopped fresh parsley
1T chopped fresh Basil
bit of pepper

In medium Saucepan, saute on med garlic in butter and oil until garlic is cooked but not burned. Add reserved clam liquid, wine, parsley, basil and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 min. Add clams and cook another 5 minutes.

Serve over cooked linguine or other pasta and Parmesan cheese. Be sure to cook that linguine well- mine was more dent'e than soft...
