How to make it
- Add the tomatoes and sugar to a saucepan and set to simmer.
- While the tomatoes are simmering, set up another saucepan on low heat with a good helping of olive oil.
- Dice up all of the veggies.
- Add the garlic and onion to the saucepan, and let them cook for a couple of minutes.
- Turn up the heat to about medium and add the peppers and saute until they are softened enough for your liking (a few minutes - don't forget they will soften more after you add them to the sauce).
- Add this mixture to the tomatoes, along with the Basil and Parsley.
- At this point, the tomatoes should be cooked down to nearly the desired texture. Add the can of clams (with the juice!) and whatever spices you'd like to the sauce.
- Simmer for another 20 or so minutes (while you cook the linguine!).
- The longer you simmer the sauce, the stronger the taste. But it tastes great with a short cooktime as well.
- Serve this right away with some parmesan sprinkled on top!
