Linguine and Clam Sauce (is the Boss)

Linguine and clam sauce

Yum.

Sorry for the long delay on new recipes. I promise I have a good excuse this time: I started a new job! It’s been great, but exhausting. I’m still trying to figure out how I can keep up my cooking schedule now that I am a real grownup, so bare with me please.

Anyway, here’s another classic Wachowiak recipe: linguine and clam sauce. Like most of the recipes I’ve done so far, it was always a favorite “special occasion” request of mine—and it’s also exceedingly simple.

Pasta Alla Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara recipe

Spaghetti carbonara wasn’t something my father cooked for me, at least not that I can remember. But back when I was first learning to cook for myself, I told him I’d prepared it using this recipe, and he reminisced about when he used to make this hearty, bacony dish. Sure enough, I found his version of the recipe in the binder my mom put together in the late 1980s.
