Spaghetti with Clams

 1 lb Colavita Spaghetti or Linguine
 3 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more as needed
 5 cloves garlic, crushed
 Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
 ½ cup dry white wine
 Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
 2 lbs littleneck clams, cleaned
 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
1

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.

2

Heat the Colavita Olive Oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 3 minutes, stirring continuously, so the garlic doesn’t burn.

3

Add red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

4

Stir in the wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 3-4 minutes.

5

Stir in clams. Cover, with a tight-fitting lid, and cook until the clams have opened, about 5-8 minutes. Discard any unopened clams.

6

Stir in pasta and season with salt and pepper. If the mixture looks dry, add in the reserved pasta water, a little at a time.

7

Turn off the heat and add the chopped parsley directly to the pasta pot. Mix well.

8

Drizzle with 1 tbsp of Colavita Olive Oil and serve!
