Linguine in Creamy Clam Sauce

J's BIG gift from Mommasita and Pinkie! Jeffrey got this poster from his best friend for a wedding present, but we just couldn't afford to get it framed. Thanks to his parents it is now in it's rightful place! He was totally surprised when he walked in this morning from being on set all night and saw it hanging. I LOVE surprises! Hopefully we will get to celebrate with dinner and a movie tonight (he may bee too tired after working all night). If not tonight, we will tomorrow!

Look how big it is! Thank you Emily for helping me hang it!

I made a pasta with clam sauce a while back, but it was more of a tomato based sauce. This was easy and incredible! I will be making it again.

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
2 cloves of garlic

Add clam juice to pan and simmer until reduced by half.
