Linguine with Clam Sauce

I love you Lizzy
This is my beautiful friend Liz, (me and Christy H. call her Jennifer Anistan because she is just so beautiful) she shared this yummy recipe with me!  She is Portuguese and her family loves seafood and John and I love seafood so this dish was perfect for us!

My kids loved it because to them it was just noodles and sauce (which is their favorite) and they just skipped the clams.  But John came home early after I texted him this was on tonight's menu!  And I made it a two night meal because we always have leftovers!

Liz, can you believe are kids were this little a year ago?
