Spaghetti vongole

 
 

Originally considered peasant food, this delicious clam dish takes me back to my travels in Italy and the Dalmatian coast (read related blog post). You can use any clams, although palourdes (carpet clams) are traditional. Other than purging the shellfish to remove grit, this is ten minute cooking so is perfect for a quick lunch with a good glass of wine.
