Can you sub white wine for anything if making a clam sauce for linguine?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
If it's because you do not have white wine or don't do alcohol, just skip it; it is not that critical a component for a clam sauce. If you need more liquid, just use water.
You can use white vermouth (such as Noilly Prat) mixed with a little bit of water or broth from the jar of clams (if you bought them in a jar... obviously).
Pat is a trusted home cook.
Chicken broth or clam broth will work.
I add a little squeeze of lemon or vinegar to the stock or broth ideas. just to bring some acidity and brightness. just a tsp per pint or so
Don't forget about your pasta water, it adds a little body and salt
