Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well.

  • Finely chop parsley; add oregano and rind.

  • 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.

  • Combine clam mixture, pasta, butter, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; toss until butter melts. Sprinkle with parsley mixture; toss well.

  • Sustainable Choice: Fresh clams are not only sustainable, but they also require no feed and they filter the water in which they live.
