When it comes to pasta there are two things I really love: a good white pasta sauce whether it be a creamy alfredo or a lighter white wine lemon sauce and I also really really love a tomato red sauce. When creating this recipe, I truly couldn’t decide between the two!
Tomato flavors with tender pasta noodles are so satisfying, but then again sometimes its good to change it up. So, I decided to do a lighter white wine lemon sauce with the addition of blistered tomatoes. The blistered tomatoes give the dish that nice juicy tomato flavor without being a tomato red sauce. It was the perfect compromise if you ask me!
Also, when creating this dish, I wanted this pasta dish to be just like how my whole body gets when I have to give a speech...clammmyyy. Ha. Sorry, not all puns are going to be winners. Anyways, this light, bright, vibrant, fresh and comforting Pretty Plate screams summer vibes. I made this dish when I was out in sunny Arizona. So, at that point in time, I was definitely feeling all of those summer vibes with the warm weather and bright shining sun.
Now, when it comes to preparing the clams, I have a few do's and don't's:
