Clams Casino Sauce
From Cook's Country
This tomato sauce recipe is a twist on the classic seafood favorite and moves the dish from appetizer to main course. Strand pastas, such as linguine or spaghetti, pair best with Clams Casino Sauce. Homemade toasted bread crumbs are infinitely better than the store-bought variety. To make them, we pulsed two slices of hearty white sandwich bread in a food processor until finely ground, then toast the crumbs on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven until golden, about eight minutes. To prevent overcooking the pasta, we didn’t rely on the cooking instructions on the pasta box; sometimes we needed to shave several minutes off the recommended cooking time for perfectly al dente pasta. We used a liquid measuring cup to retrieve 1/2 cup pasta water from the pot just before draining. If the sauced pasta was too dry, we used the water to achieve the desired consistency.
Makes enough to sauce 1 pound of pasta
