Dad's Linguine with Red Clam Sauce

We have enjoyed this dish for years, especially since the clams are readily accessible in my parent's backyard....in the bay of North Wildwood.  We have all taken our turn "clamming" and have fond memories of returning to the house so Dad can prepare this delicious meal.
 

INGREDIENTS:
1 lb. Linguini
¼ Cup Olive oil
2 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
32 oz. Crushed Tomatoes
18 Small Clams, Scrubbed Well
1 Small Can Tomato Paste
5 Basil Leaves

DIRECTIONS:
Boil the linguini in salted water according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, brown the garlic in olive oil over medium heat for approx. 2 minutes (do not burn). Add 1 cup of crushed tomatoes and sauté for approx. 5 minutes. Wash the clams thoroughly and add to tomato mixture in pan. Cover the sauté pan until clams open (approx. 8-10 minutes). Remove clams, discarding any that did not open. Add remaining crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and fresh basil, along with two cans of water (using tomato paste can). After sauce bubbles, return clams to pan. Simmer for 15 minutes on low heat. When linguini is cooked al dente, drain and add to clam mixture until all flavors are combined and linguini is cooked through.
