Scrub clams; discard any that do not close when tapped. In saucepan, cover and steam clams and wine over high heat until clams open, 4 to 5 minutes. Strain into bowl, reserving broth. Discard any clams that do not open. Set aside.
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook linguine according to package directions until tender but firm; drain.
Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat; cook garlic, parsley, salt and hot pepper flakes, stirring occasionally, until garlic is softened but not browned, about 2 minutes.
Add reserved clam broth; bring to boil. Add linguine; boil on high, stirring often, until about 3 tbsp (45 mL) liquid remains, about 2 minutes.
Add clams; toss until heated through. Stir in butter.
Additional information : Tip: Instead of clams, you can use 1 lb (500 g) mussels if you prefer.
