  1.  Add the 3 cans of clams and the juice ! NEVER drain the clam juice,Its the most important part.. Then the 3 cans  whole mushroom caps (and those you drain) .Turn the heat  on high and bring to a boil
  2. Next turn the heat to medium for a slower boil. Add the 1/4 cup parsley flakes and  1 Tbs red hot pepper flakes. I use the  whole mushroom caps because as the sauce cooks down the mushrooms get soft and soak in all the flavors . And you can taste the red pepper flakes in ever mushroom cap! 
  3. Cook for 20 minutes  on medium heat and you will notice that the juices have turned a tan color and is getting thicker. .Thats when you know its almost done.

Step 4: Cook the linguini
