Linguini Vongele with Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 -6 servings

  • 2 tbsps. Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of dried red chili flakes
  • 3 minced cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 pound dried linguini, broken in half
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 pounds of fresh little clams, scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp. zest and 2 tbsps. fresh juice from 1 lemon

Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook until the onions soften, about 3 minutes. Add the chili flakes and garlic and cook until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Add the white wine and stir together.

Add the stock to the pan with the linguini and adjust the heat to maintain a vigorous boil and cook until the pasta has begun to soften and is halfway through the cooking process, about 5 minutes. Then add half of the parsley and half of the tomatoes and stir to combine. Add the clams, cover and cook until they open, 6 to 8 minutes, making sure to stir and scrape the bottom of the pan so nothing sticks. Discard any clams that do not open. Finish with the lemon juice and zest, black pepper and the remaining parsley and tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and serve immediately.

Buon Appetito!
