A simple, yet timeless classic
Prep time: 20 minutes
In a 4-quart saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil over high heat.
Add linguini, and cook according to package directions for the shortest recommended time, about 9 minutes.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add garlic, and cook gently until it begins to soften, about 30 seconds. Do not brown.
Add lemon juice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
Add clams, along with liquid, parsley, salt, pepper, and butter. Simmer just until heated through, about 1-2 minutes. Do not overcook.
Strain the linguini, then add the pasta to the saucepan with the clams and mix well.
Divide into 4 equal portions (each about 2½ cups), and serve.
