Linguine with Wild Mushrooms, Clams and Wine
6 tbsp olive oil
1 lb mixed fresh wild mushrooms, (such as oyster mushrooms and shiitake, stems trimmed, caps sliced)
6 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp dried crushed red pepper
1 cup dry white wine
5 lb Clams, (about 24 littleneck)
1 lb linguine
2 fresh chives or 1 bunch green onions, chopped
Heat 3 tbsp oil in heavy large Dutch oven over high heat. Add mushrooms and saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to plate. Add remaining 3 tbsp oil and garlic to Dutch oven. Saute until garlic is tender, about 3 minutes.
Add crushed red pepper, then wine and clams. Cover and cook until clams open, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook linguine in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite.
Drain pasta well and transfer to large bowl. Spoon mushrooms over, then top with clam mixture, discarding any clams that do not open. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chives.
