Garlic Clam Linguine with Wine

My wife is out tonight watching the new Harry Potter movie (or trying to, it was sold out...too many little munchkins), so I got to make whatever I wanted. Well, I usually do that anyway.

1 slice bacon, cut lengthwise then chopped
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 yellow onions, diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can baby clams, drain ½ the juice
¼ cup white wine
½ tablespoon butter
1 tomato, diced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Any long pasta (I used whole wheat spaghetti)

Parmesan cheese
Chopped parsley

  1. Add bacon to a hot, stainless steel frying pan or sauté pan.

  2. When browned, add olive oil and onion, and stir occasionally until softened. Add red pepper and garlic, stir often to prevent garlic from burning.

  3. Add can of clams, white wine, and butter. Heat through, then add tomatoes and salt / pepper. Heat through and serve on pasta. Top with parmesan and parsley (this dish needs a little color).

Bacon, mmmmm my favorite food group! I substituted pimiento at the end rather than the tomato. BEST CLAM SAUCE WE EVER HAD. Thanks for the recipe. Mary Anne & Art
