Linguine with Clams
Linguine alle Vongole
by James Belardo

On our last trip to Calabria, Italy, I was obsessed with their clams. For the first week I ate clams every day, sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner. The simplicity, the freshness and quality of the ingredients were really apparent.

Ingredients
1 bunch littleneck (small) clams
1 handful cherry tomatoes, halved
Fresh basil
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
1 cup dry white wine (Pinot Grigio)
olive oil
pasta water
Salt and Pepper – to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

Pasta
Linguine

Directions
1. While cooking the linguine, sauté garlic in 2-4 tbsp olive oil.
