Cooking Connection: Linguine with Clam Sauce

For this week’s Cooking Connection we made an Italian seafood dish with Victor Recchia, father of FOX 21 Meteorologist Gino Recchia. 

Victor has owned Calo Ristorante in Chicago for almost 54 years. 

Victor says he loves to be around food and to cook. 

He showed us how to make Linguine with White Clam Sauce.
