Servings 4 people


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 box linguine cooked al dente
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes sliced
  • 2 15oz cans clams drained, reserve liquid
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder with enough water to make a slurry


  • Cook your pasta according to al dente directions.
  • Dice your onion and garlic. Strain your clams reserving the liquid. Slice your tomatoes in half.
  • Heat your butter in a large pot. I made this recipe in my trusty dutch oven. It's big enough to handle the job.
  • Saute until your onions start to brown, 5-10 minutes. Add your garlic and remember it only takes 30-60 seconds for garlic to start to burn. Be prepared.
  • Add your clam liquid and then cream. Turn heat low enough so it's just under boiling. Stir frequently.
  • Stir in arrowroot slurry.
  • Stir in tomatoes and clams and let cook for 2 minutes
  • Mix in pasta and let cook for 1-2 minutes
  • Enjoy
