Remove the clams from the pot and cook the remaining liquid for 5 more minutes. Then, strain the stock through a fine strainer to remove any sand that may have settled to the bottom. When the clams cool, remove them from the shells, leaving a few in the shell for garnish on top of the finished pasta dish. Boil one pound of linguine.
