Linguine with Clams Chouriço and Fava Beans

70 days...I have been home for 70 days. Except for going outside to walk the dog or to get essentials, I have been home. The weather has been fantastic throughout this whole ordeal.

Since living in the UK, I don't remember even 7 consecutive days of beautiful weather, never mind 70. has been wonderful. Everyone is complaining about staying home, but for me it has been blissful.

Clams and fava beans always remind me of summer. I wish I could be in Portugal eating the best fish and seafood on the planet. Next best house.

This recipe is fast and easy. It takes less than 15 minutes to get to the table.
