Linguine with Marechiaro Sauce

(Serves 4)
Linguine with Marechiaro Sauce
Marechiaro is a location in Naples.  The word literally means 'clear sea.'  Dishes that are in
the style of Marechiaro usually contain fish, clams, or mussels in a tomato sauce seasoned
with garlic and parsley.  This recipe is very similar to linguine with a red clam sauce but it
adds a little more heat.  Notice that the sauce uses tomato juice and not sauce which gives it
a very light texture when combined with the clam juice.  You many choose to substitute
mussels for the clams or add some squid rings.
Ingredients:

1 pound linguine
1 (10- ounce) can chopped clams
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried basil
1-1/2 cups tomato juice
1/4 cup white wine (optional)
18 to 24 littleneck clams
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Salt

Directions:

Cook linguine in boiling salted water for 2 minutes less than the time recommended.  The pasta will cook later in the sauce and allow it to absorb some of the sauce's flavor.

In the meantime, place canned clams in a strainer over a bowl to catch the juices.  Set drained clams and clam liquid aside.

In a wide saucepan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes.  Saute until the garlic just begins to turn golden, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the dried basil and saute another 30 seconds.  Stir in the tomato juice, wine (optional), and the reserved clam liquid.  Add the littleneck clams to the sauce, cover, and cook about 5 minutes or until clams begin to open.  As the clams open remove them to a bowl, so they don't over cook. *  When all the clams have opened and been removed, add the drained canned clams and the parsley.  Also add the cooked, drained linguine at this time.  Cook the mixture for 2 minutes.  Check the seasoning, adding salt if necessary.  Transfer the pasta and sauce to a serving bowl.  Top with littleneck clams and serve.

* Discard any clams that have not opened after sufficient amount of cooking,
as they may not be safe to eat.
