Step 1

Heat oil in a very large pot over medium heat.

Add onion, garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Saute until the onion is tender, about 10 minutes.

Add tomatoes with their juice, clam juice, and wine. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Decrease heat to medium and simmer uncovered until the liquid reduces by one-third, about 30 minutes.

Add the clams, cover, and simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, just until the clams open (discard any that don't open), about 8 minutes.

Remove pot from the heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer clams to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.

Stir parsley and butter into the pot.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the linguine and cook, stirring frequently until tender but still firm, about 8 minutes. Drain.

Add linguine to the sauce and toss. Season with salt and pepper.

Put pasta in bowls.

Top with clams, and serve.
