Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups vertically sliced red onion

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well.
  2. 2. Finely chop parsley; add oregano and rind.
  3. 3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic; sauté 4 minutes. Add wine and clams; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until shells open. Discard any unopened shells.
  4. 4. Combine clam mixture, pasta, butter, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; toss until butter melts. Sprinkle with parsley mixture; toss well.
