Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. Historically, people secured food through two methods: hunting and gathering and agriculture. Today, the majority of the food energy required by the ever increasing population of the world is supplied by the food industry.

Speaking Italian?
Well, here is a recipee for a plate of original Spaghetti Vongole.
Prepare this dish two ways:
in bianco, i.e., with oil, garlic, parsley, and sometimes a splash of white wine;
in rosso, like the former but with tomatoes and fresh basil, the addition of tomatoes being more frequent in the south.

Prep Time: 30 minutesCook time: 40 minutes
Palourde, or carpet-shell clams, vongola verace, are used; or the small, Mediterranean Wedge Shell (Donax trunculus), also known as the Tellina or “bean clam”. Both types are also called arselle in Liguria and Tuscany.

How to make Spaghetti Vongole

Ingredienti

  • 400g spaghetti
  • 600g vongole
  • 1 spicchio d’aglio
  • 1 decilitro di olio extra vergine d’oliva
  • prezzemolo tagliato
  • peperoncino piccante (appena un pezzetto, facoltativo)
  • sale

Soffriggete l’aglio ed il peperoncino con olio in una padella larga e bassa. Aggiungete le vongole ben lavate, coprite ed attendete che si aprano. A parte, cuocete gli spaghetti e scolateli quando ancora non sono ben cotti, aggiungeteli alle vongole ed al prezzemolo tagliato. Molte persone preferiscono aggiungere nella padella con aglio olio e peperoncino anche dei pomodorini tagliati a meta.
