1 can clams and juices
1 can smoked oysters and juices
1/4 cup sesame or olive oil
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon real butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
Cook linguine per package directions. In the meantime in a medium saucepan on medium heat, add all the rest of the ingredients. Heat until butter melts and ingredients are well blended and heat through. Drain linguine and put into a large serving dish, top with the oyster and clam mixture and toss well.

If you don’t like smoked oysters you can omit them. You can also top with (your) favorite grated cheese. Also, these is great with any toasted bread or bread sticks.

The bacon taco shell is fairly easy to make at home.
Ingredients: 4 strips of bacon (your choice of flavor)
Prep: Just create an overlapping bacon “fabric” by weaving the strips together. Drape the shell over a taco-shaped mold (such as aluminum foil or small Pyrex bowls) to form the signature crunchy taco shape. Cook the sheet in the oven at 400 degrees until browned and crispy. Once cool, fill it with your favor taco ingredients and enjoy!
I saw this on Buzzfed.com. I thought I had to share this with all my bacon lovers. How cool is this.
