Garlic and oregano enhance the seafood flavor of this delicious linguine with white clam sauce. An Italian friend of my mom's passed on the recipe to her, and I began preparing it when I was 14. For convenience, it can be made in advance—and leftovers are just as good! —Kelli Soike, Tallahassee, Florida
