Zucchini Linguine with Clam Sauce

Who doesn't love Linguine with Clam Sauce? I know I can't get enough of it, but what I can get enough of is calories and simple carbohydrates.

Much of the food I make is inspired by the unhealthy versions of food that I enjoy, because lets face it, there is no use in fighting cravings (they often come back with a vengeance) instead why not turn your unhealthy craving into something healthy that you will not feel guilty about enjoying (and you won't need to unbutton your pants either).
