1/4c Liquid Gold Lemon Infused olive oil

3 cloves garliic

1/3 cup flat leaf parsley

One small finely shopped hot red pepper (seeded)

2 c. diced tomatoes

2 c. baby clams, with their juice

1/2 c. white wine

1 pound linguine (or spaghetti)

In a large skillet, heat the lemon infused olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until it softens but does not colour. Add the parsley and red pepper and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Add clams and their juice, simmer for 2-3 mins. Add salt, keep warm while pasta is cooking.

Meanwhile, bring 6 quarts of well salted water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain well, save 2 tablespoons of the water and add to the sauce. Stir the pasta into the sauce and reheat for 1 minute or so, serve immediately.
