Linguine with Tomato Clam Sauce

On that last Friday cooking, I invited my Taiwanese friend to my Peruvian friend's place and I assigned him to work on the main dish. At the last minute, he called at my lab that he can't make it...So, I have to figure out a last minute dish. I was quickly browsing in the supermarket to see whatever is on special and finally, I came out with clams in tomato sauce reduced in white wine served with linguine. For a last minute dish, it was quick and delicious especially with white wine.
