Jeffrey's Oceans Eleven Clam Linguine Recipe

Image: Oceans Eleven Clam Linguine Recipe

Oceans Eleven Clam Linguine recipe is quick and easy to make, yet boasts delicious flavor. Jeffrey says it should taste like the sea therefore he dives into the ocean to get his own fresh clams! He lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada therefore I think he is full of it, wouldn't you agree! He is my husband's brother and I am quite sure Jeff is an Italian wanna be. He insisted I let him put his recipe in the Italian pasta recipes section of my website. (Lol).

Vienna focaccia bread and roasted garlic Caesar salad are a must!
