Cooking & Preparation Time:  Around 40 minutes  

Starfish Rating:


1 lb (450 g) linguine OR fettuccine
2 tablespoon (30 ml) olive oil
4 strips pancetta OR bacon, diced
3 to 4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 to 2 dried red chili peppers, crumbled, OR crushed red pepper flakes
2 lb (900 g) littleneck clams, scrubbed
1 cup (250 ml) dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
1 handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil and pancetta or bacon, stirring occasionally, until the pork begins to turn golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chili peppers; cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic softens, about 3 minutes.

Add the clams and wine, cover and cook until all the clams have opened, 5 to 10 minutes. Discard any clams that remain closed.

Remove from heat, add the pasta and toss to coat with the sauce. Add the parsley, taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly. (You may not need any salt.) Serve immediately.
