Pasta With Clams And White Wine

I wanted to make a special meal for my boyfriends birthday a couple of days ago and thought it was a long time since I made this wonderful dinner with clams and white wine. It was very appreciated by the family, so I thought I would share the recipe with you as it’s incredibly easy to make!

Here’s what you need

    • 1 net blue mussels
    • 1 net clams
    • 1 yellow onion
    • 5 garlic cloves
    • 3 tsp olive oil
    • 3 tsp butter
    • 4 dl dry white wine (I used El Coto Rioja)
    • 3 dl chopped fresh parsley
    • 350g pasta (I used fettuchine)
    • 1 lemon
    • Salt & Pepper
    1. Scrub the clams. Throw away the ones that are broken or that won’t close when carefully knocked against the kitchen sink.
    1. Chop the onion and garlic in fine pieces and fry in the olive oil and butter. Add the wine and clams and let it steam for about 5-7 min. Stir around a few times during that time. Throw the clams that hasn’t opened up. Carefully lift all the clams away to a separate plate and put aside. Let the broth boil down to half.
    1. Boil the pasta according to the instructions and remove about a minute before done.
    1. Pour out the pasta water but leave about 1 dl of it. Mix in with the broth and clams and add the parsley and let it all boil together for about 2 min. Add salt and pepper and serve with lemon wedges.

Serve with a nice bottle of white wine and garlic bread. Enjoy!
