Spaghetti alle Vongole


Β Spaghetti Vongole Recipe

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!

    I prefer fresh clams for this. I cooked similar dish recently too and can you even imagine how “lazy” my cooking of vongole can be? But it turned out to my liking!

    Spaghetti alle Vongole is so much cheaper to make at home! I don’t remember the last time I ordered it in a restaurant, but I am sure that I felt a little regret over paying so much for a simple to make dish. Anyway, now I am wanting to make this at home very soon. I love clams so much!

    You’re so lucky to get this recipe from an Italian friend. I must learn it too since it’s my favourite as well as cost saving. Your dish looks very flavourful and tasty with the fresh herbs and chilli. ;)
