This is an authentic recipe for Spaghetti alle Vongole (Italian for spaghetti and clams) shared by my Italian friend Isa. This has always been my favourite Italian pasta dish, but ordering it at a decent Italian restaurant is not cheap. Now, thanks to this recipe, I was thrilled that not only can I cook this at home at a fraction of the cost (with extra servings of clams), but the cooking method is also quite easy with just a few ingredients. Now I can tuck into this dish as often as I like, and the cost savings can be used to buy a good bottle of white wine to pair with my spaghetti. Buon Appetito!

    Hi Noobcook,

    I’m a total noob when it comes to wine, so what exactly is dry white wine? Perhaps you could help me out by naming what white is suitable, i.e. Chadronnay (as seen in the comments).. Thanks a mil.

      Hi Gerous, from my limited knowledge of wines, not all chardonnay are dry, therefore you have to read the label because it will indicate clearly if the wine is dry or otherwise. A common type of dry white wine is dry vermouth (they do have the sweet variety too so have to read the label). For me, I usually grab any white wine that is on sale, dry preferred, but if I can’t find dry, make sure that the wine is not fruity or sweet as they are more suitable for desserts than a savoury dish like vongole. Hope this helps.

    Am just wondering what shd I use instead of white wine? Is there a substitute that will not change the overall taste of the pasta?
    Reallky appreciate your feedback/comments.

      Hi Marhamah, it will be all right without the wine. If you really want to, you can substitute with some seafood stock but it’s not really necessary.

    are those La La Clams?

      Yes those are lala clams but you can use any clams accessible in your area (e.g. asari clams, manilla clams).
