Here’s another favorite of mine from Tuscookany–Franco’s linguine with clams.
This is super easy to make and is ready in no time. I cheated this time and bought fresh pasta at the market…if you’re going to cheat, at least cheat with good fresh pasta.
- 1 kg / 2 lb fresh clams
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 200 g / 7 oz cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 500 g / 1 lb linguine
- 1 handful Italian parsley, chopped
- 5 TBS olive oil
Pour the olive oil into a large frying pan and when it’s hot add the garlic and chili powder and fry until golden.
Add the clams and cover the pan and let it cook for a few minutes on high until all the clams open.
Scoop out the clams and set aside.
Drain the linguine and put it into the frying pan and add the clams, mix well and add a little more pasta water, if needed. Add the chopped parsley and serve.
