Linguine alle Vongole Bianco



  • 5 oz of pasta
  • olive oil 2 table spoon
  • 2,3 pieces of garlic
  • a little bit of italian parsley
  • a half cup of white wine 
  • butter tea spoon
  • a half pound of clam
  • a half cup of broth or boiling water for pasta

1: Soak clam in cold water for a half day to drain sand out

2: When you boil pasta, you should use a big pod and a lot of water. Pasta should be ready at the same time as sauce is cooked. The timing is very important. If you feel difficult, lets get sauce done first, and then mix al dente pasta with its sauce.   

3: Add olive oil and chopped garlic into the pan, and then stir fly with low heat. Be carefull of burning garlic. When garlic gets right brown, toss clam into the pan.

4: Cook clam with garlic oil.  When the temperature gets to the highest, flambe clam with white wine and make fire! wow! Put a cover over the pan and steam until clam opens up its shell.

5: After you make sure that clams are cooked, add butter and broth. If you want to enjoy seafood flavor, just add build water for pasta.

6: Add boiled pasta to the sauce and cook for about 1 minute. The sauce gets slight as cooking. This is called emulsification.Add salt if you need.

7: Add parsley for topping or whatever you want, such as garlic tips.

I personally prefer bianco more than rosso. Pasta al dente means that has been cooked so as to be firm but not hard. Usually, 1 minute before its direction. 

Regular pasta should be taken out 1 minute before regular cook time.
Soup pasta should be taken out 2,3 minutes before, and cook pasta in the soup sauce until al dente

Bon appétit
