4 (6 ounce) cans clams chopped or minced

1 dozen fresh little neck clams

1 large white onion

6 cloves garlic chopped finely

Salt and black pepper

Handful oregano, chopped

1 large green pepper, chopped

6 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 dry white wine

1/4 cup fresh basil, if dry, then 1/8 cup

Heaping tablespoon garlic powder

1 small bottle clam juice

2 pounds linguini or spaghetti

Directions

  1. Coat the bottom of a pan with the olive oil. Saute onion, green pepper, and chopped garlic in the olive oil.
