    In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; cook chorizo, onion, garlic, pepper and salt, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until onion is softened. Add wine, cook, stirring, until most of the liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and juices; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up tomatoes with a spoon, for 15 minutes or until thickened.

  • Step 2

    Add clams, cover and increase heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high; cook until clams open wide, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Using slotted spoon, transfer clams to a bowl; cover and set aside. Continue cooking tomato mixture uncovered over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring, or until thickened. Stir in vinegar.,

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling, salted water, cook linguini for 7 to 9 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain; toss with tomato sauce. Divide among six dinner plates; spoon clams over top and sprinkle with parsley.
