Did you ever dream of being a Food below the recipe to join me in Food Blogging 101..

Summer at the beach house here on the Adriatic is just not complete without one dish of freshly made linguine a la vongole (linguine pasta with clams).. first a trip to the fish market at 5 AM to get the freshest, just caught clams..then some time spent cleaning and soaking..then finally it’s time to saute them in just the right amount of olive oil with some fresh garlic, dry white wine and fresh parsley….and then it is time for the pasta

Everything has to be executed almost like a theatrical production..and the best is always saved for last..the pasta..and the finale.. is a finished plate of linguine with clams..delicious enough to deserve a standing ovation!

To create your own theatrical masterpiece of Linguine with Clams

Add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic to a large saute pan. Add in freshly washed clams, add in 1/2 cup dry white wine and some freshly minced parsley, saute till all clams have opened up, discard any that do not open. Cook a pound of linguini pasta till al dente. When done, drain and toss in saute pan with clams, toss around to coat pasta, serve with some freshly minced parsley on top and a glass of dry white wine!

If you can’t get to the beach, take a  staycation at home decorate a table with colors of the sea,eat al fresco if possible and eat your linguini with clams stateside while thinking of the sea…
