Linguini With White Clam Sauce

My kids are big fans of Linguine with White Clam Sauce. I've even gotten my kid's friends to eat this dish, much to the surprise of their parents. I try to keep canned clams and linguine in the house for nights when I need to make a quick dinner. This recipe is also very forgiving. If you don't want to use clam juice or white wine, just add additional chicken broth.
