Linguine with Clams and Mussels ~ simple, budget-friendly, and has all the flavors of the sea…
I am pumped and getting ready for today. Oh it’s gonna be quite a looong and busy day, I’m sure.
It’s actually been a month since I attended any food event because I’ve been a bit strict with myself with my new diet. But today I said yes to three. Yes, three! Can you even believe it? I’m going to three food events today. I don’t know if it’s gonna be a challenge or not because I’ve already adjusted to how I eat these days. I believe it has already become a habit.
So today is going to be a new experience for me. I used to put to put too much food on my plate. Then I finish up and gobble everything because I have this psychological thing going on about food wastage. I end up eating more than I should. Now, I’ve learned a lot about portion control and how to prioritize my health above all else.
Hmmm, we’ll see.
How’s your weekend? We just stayed at home and I did a lot of cooking. Aside from the Tofu Binagoongan, this Linguine with Clams and Mussels was also a part of it.
It’s like Spaghetti ala Vongole only I used linguine and I added some mussels for our enjoyment. What I love about this recipe is that it’s budget-friendly and so easy to make. I got half a kilo of clams for ₱50 and half a kilo of mussels for ₱40 at the wet market. They’re not that big but they’re fresh so I’m all okay with that.
If you don’t have white wine, then you don’t really have to buy a bottle just to get that ½ cup in the ingredients list. You may substitute ½ cup of chicken stock or ½ a chicken cube dissolved in ½ cup of water. It will do just fine and this pasta dish will taste just as delicious.
Oh, you’ll l♥ve this, I guarantee!
Bye for now. I gotta work-out a little before I start this busy day.

This looks so delicious, what a great way to celebrate simple ingredients.
Thanks All that I’m eating!
I so miss fresh muscles, I can only buy frozen ones…it’s not the same! Looks nomnom-y yummy!
Portion control is SO important. And so hard to do, alas. I could easily eat proper portions of this. Just as long as I could have three! 🙂 Really nice — thanks.
Yes, I love simple and easy dish for weekdays, and this is a winner…super delicious!
I hope you are enjoying your week Peachy 🙂
Its ingredients are absolutely amazing with a pasta
That is a perfect summer meal. It’s seafood season here in New england, so there will be lots of clams and mussels readily available around here.
Yum! Now I know what I’ll be making for dinner this week. It looks fantastic!
I love seafood.. this looks so tasty I am going to have to try and make it!
This looks amazing! I love seafood in general, but clams are my favorite! I really need to try thi linquine out!
You posted this in perfect timing… I’m so glad I read this! My ten year anniversary is coming up and this would be the perfect romantic dish
This sounds delicious! Seafood pasta is one of my favourites and it’s a perfect dish for the spring/summer weather we’ve got coming up!
I’d love the linguine but unfortunately I do not like sea food. I’d have to skip that part and put on a marinara sauce.
Linguine and clams used to be one of my favorite meals, but about three years ago I got super sick of it and haven’t made it since. Maybe a new recipe will tempt my taste buds again! I like the addition of mussels so I will go ahead and give this a try.
Ooh have fun at your three food events hope they go well! I like the look of this linguine it looks super fresh x
This linguine with clams and mussels actually looks so good. I don’t eat seafood much but my family loves it. This recipe I will have to make for them for sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This looks amazing. I love Italian and seafood. I have never had clams but it would be worth trying.
It looks like such a great recipe. This is definitely one of my favorite Italian dishes. My daughter has seen me order it more times than she would like to admit.
The recipe looks fab. I would love to have some. You’re making me hungry now!
Thanks for sharing your recipe. Hhmm now am craving for some linguine and wine!
The recipe looks so simple to make. All i have to do is source for really fresh clams and mussels. Doing it at home is a really good alternative because anything seafood pasta in a resto will always cost a small fortune. i will definitely be cooking this recipe this weekend
I may veganise this sauce. It’s very simple and we already have the ingredients. Probably top it with Tofu or veggie ground round!
I’ve never tried this before and I hate cooking but it does look delicious. Maybe I will have to be braver and try!
I dont know how i feel about this. I am not opposed to trying new things, however I am not sure if I could do the clams!
Oh wow that looks absolutely amazing! I’ve recently moved and I’m still looking for a really good place to buy fish. Once I find it i’m so making this dish!
What a gorgeous recipe! I hope you had a lovely time at your three foodie events – how wonderful to get to go to such things!
I love linguine, but I never tried it like this. It looks delicious and perfect for dinner tonight.
I’ve always loved pasta with seafood it’s the perfect marriage of flavors. This recipe is perfect for the summer! I love how fresh it looks as well. Very enticing!
I would love to give this recipe a try! It’s not so difficult to make and it’s something that my husband and I will definitely enjoy.
I am so making this as soon as possible. This looks absolutely delicious. I cannot wait to try it! Thank you for sharing this recipe. <3
