White Wine-Tomato-and-Clam Pasta

Opening a bottle of wine for a small amount may seem wasteful unless you plan to serve the rest with dinner. Opt to buy the small bottles, usually sold in four-packs in the wine section of the supermarket. Use a Chianti or Merlot for red wine and Pinot Grigio for white in the White Wine-Tomato-and-Clam Pasta variation.
