"To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings."
I love linguine with clam sauce and this red clam sauce is no exception. It takes only a few minutes to prepare and the flavor is fantastic. There's no need to add salt as the clam broth gives the sauce a fresh salty taste.
Cooking with the best quality ingredients results in the best quality dish. This is so important with your choice of wine. For white wines choose a chardonnay in recipes that are rich or savory and a dry sauvignon blanc for tart or acidic recipes.
Full bodied reds like cabernet are the choice for a stews or rich sauces. When I am making a dish that requires a little more finesse I might choose a young pinot noir.

|4 ounces||whole wheat or gluten-free linguine|
|1 Tbsp||olive oil|
|1 large||shallot (minced)|
|1||rib celery (finely diced)|
|1/2 small||green bell pepper (diced)|
|1 15 ounce can||no salt added diced tomatoes|
|1/4 cup||red wine|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|1 Tbsp||fresh oregano leaves|
|1 ounce||Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)|
Place 1 cup water in a large skillet over high heat. When the water is simmering, add the clams and cover.
Cook until all the clams open – about 4 minutes. (It will take a minute or two longer if the clams have come straight out of the refrigerator.)
Remove the clams and then shuck the clams from the shells. Strain the broth through a fine mesh sieve.
Rinse out the skillet and place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the shallot, celery and pepper . Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the wine, tomatoes and the strained clam broth to the pan. Season with the pepper and add the oregano.
Cook over medium high heat until the liquid is reduced by about 2/3 (about 15 to 20 minutes).
While the red sauce is simmering, add the remaining water in a medium stock pot over high heat. When the water boils add the linguine.
Add the clams.
Add the drained linguine, toss well to coat and serve topped with the grated parmesan.
