Directions:
Begin by boiling linguine. Cook until al dente. Pasta will cook additionally in clam sauce. While boiling, place olive oil in deep skillet. Sautee onion till translucent and add chopped garlic and sauté before it turns golden. Add clams to skillet and pour bottled clam juice into fry pan, cover and steam for 7 minutes or until clams open. Remove clams and shell, returning clams to pan. If clams are large, cut into large pieces before returning to pan. Then pour in chicken stock and generously season with salt and pepper. Simmer a bit to reduce liquid and then add 1 Tbsp. of butter at a time incorporating in. Squeeze in fresh lemon juice and add fresh parsley. Drain pasta and add to pan if deep enough.

Personal Notes:
This is a quick, light and delicious meal. Serve with white wine and freshly baked Italian or French bread. You can use canned whole baby clams and their liquid, cut back on stock if you do this. Frozen whole tiny clams are also available in your seafood market! One of my favorites. Serves 6 to 8.
