Clams and Mussels with pasta and white wine sauce – 15 Minutes
Clams and Mussels with pasta in a white wine sauce with garlic jazzing it up is a favorite at our house.
We get them in the frozen food section already cleaned and cooked. If you can get good, fresh seafood where you live scrub them and cull out the dead ones that don’t close up when you tap them or don’t open up when cooked.
Put a pot of salted water on the stove getting hot for the pasta. Cook the pasta,stirring occasionally while you are preparing the clams and mussels. Put a skillet on the stove at medium high. Add olive oil and the chopped garlic. Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir it all together and when the garlic starts to get translucent add the clams and mussels. Mix it up and let it cook for a minute or so.
Add the white wine and the butter.
Simmer until the wine reduces to the thickness YOU want.
Portion out the pasta in serving bowls and add the Clams and Mussels. Enjoy it! With some of Poppop’s easy homemade bread and nice bottle of chilled white wine. Chablis always goes good with seafood.
It’s easy and I’ll bet that it becomes a regular at your house too.
