This is a recipe that I have been making for more than 20 years. I modified this recipe of Clams Linguine for use in the Instant Pot not that long ago. I keep making it over and over again because it is my go to when I really don’t feel like cooking and cleaning up after a long day. I mean after all this thing has a very fast cook time. Instant Pot Clams Linguine will be your friend too.
I don’t know if you have tried making pasta dishes in your Instant Pot but if not you should because they come out pretty amazing. I always thought they wouldn’t but one night once again I didn’t feel like cooking and cleaning and thing crazy after a long day. I had a craving for some pasta so I surfed the internet a bit looking for ideas and found a spaghetti sauce recipe and decided to give it a try. To be honest I was expecting something like canned pasta to be the result but to my surprise it came out AWESOME!
So from that day I had a new respect for my Instant Pot. I said to myself….Gee I wonder if I could convert my trusty old Clams Linguine recipe for use in the Instant Pot.
Well since you’re reading this you know how that turned out. I absolutely love this recipe even though it uses canned clams it’s totally delicious. Loaded with garlic and spices and a touch of hot red pepper you will be surprised to how tasty this is and how easy it is to make. Actually writing this makes me want it right now.
