Slow Cooker Linguine with Clam Sauce
My daughter recently ordered linguine with white clam sauce at an Italian restaurant and it got me thinking if this garlicky goodness could be successfully made in a slow cooker. Well, she went back for two helpings and we decided this was as good as or even better than the restaurant one. Mission accomplished!

    Recipe Notes

    * I use Bumble Bee Premium Wild Select Fancy Baby Clams which do not have preservatives (except citric acid).

    A garden salad or any green vegetable (think sauteed garlicky spinach!) would be perfect to round out this meal.
