Our answer

Nigella's Linguine With Clams (from HOW TO EAT) is a dish that uses palourde clams. They may also be sold as carpet shell clams and sometimes as manila clams. You could substitute another small or medium-sized clam that you can find locally, such as cherrystone clams, littleneck clams or small ark clams.

Mussels are also bivalves that could be used in the recipe and if you use mussels then you may want to follow the mussel preparation and cooking instructions for Nigella's Linguine With Mussels.
