This paleo linguini with clam sauce recipe uses fresh clams and zucchini noodles to make a delicious, quick and easy, healthy meal.
One of my favorite foods growing up was linguini with clam sauce. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that the linguini I used to eat came from a box with frozen pasta inside a plastic bag that was meant to be microwaved. It was quick and easy, but I had no idea how quickly and easily the real deal can be thrown together!
Of course you can make this with actual pasta, and I have an older recipe up for how you can quickly and easily make your own pasta. As you know, though, I have cut out gluten and most grains, and have been trying to get in more healthy veggies into my meals. One of the best tools for doing that is a vegetable spiralizer.
Ever since I’ve had my spiralizer, I’ve been having fun experimenting with it. I have tried it with lots of fruits and veggies, but I still find the most versatile of them to be zucchini noodles, aka. “zoodles”. At first, my favorite recipe using zucchini noodles was my Asian style fried zucchini noodles. It’s a quick, healthy recipe that helps me use up some of my hens’ eggs, and I still love and make it occasionally, despite always wanting to try new things.
This past spring, I also showed you my paleo pho soup using zucchini noodles. While that recipe takes a little longer to make, it’s perfectly soothing in the winter, and it was probably my new favorite until I made this paleo linguini with clam sauce. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the pho recipe, but it just isn’t as appealing to me in the summer to be making soup. Plus, the simplicity of this new recipe makes it easy for me to quickly whip out a healthy meal in only around 15 minutes. Clams and zucchini make me think of a summer beach party, and they make a very tasty combination.
