White Clam Sauce

5 MINS Preparation Time
25 MINS Cooking Time
4-5 Servings
Easy Difficulty

Ingredients

2 TBSP BUTTER
2 TBSP OLIVE OIL
3 ANCHOVY FILLETS
5 CLOVES GARLIC, THINLY SLICED
¼ TSP CRUSHED RED PEPPER FLAKES
(1) 6.5 OZ CAN MINCED CLAMS, DRAINED
8 OZ CLAM JUICE
½ CUP WHITE WINE
1 LEMON, JUICED
1 BAG SMALL CLAMS, ABOUT 36
½ CUP FRESH CHOPPED PARSLEY
1LB BORGATTI'S LEMON PEPPER FETTUCCINE

Preparation

1:

Begin by heating butter and olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add anchovy fillets to the pan and cook them until they dissolve, which should take about 2 minutes. Next, incorporate garlic and red pepper flakes into the pan, sautéing them until they become fragrant. This should take about 1 to 2 minutes.

2:

Then, add canned clams, clam juice, wine, and lemon juice to the pan. Allow the sauce to reduce over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Rinse fresh clams and add them to the pan, ensuring to discard any clams with cracked shells. Cover the pan with a lid and cook until the clams open, which will take around 5 minutes. Once the clams have opened, remove them from the pan. Be sure to discard any clams that haven’t opened.

3:

Continue cooking the sauce to reduce it further while you prepare the pasta. Boil lemon pepper fettuccine for 3 minutes. After boiling the pasta, add it along with chopped parsley to the sauce, allowing the pasta to finish cooking in the sauce.

4:

Serve the pasta topped with the cooked fresh clams. Pour the extra sauce over the clams to rewarm them. Optionally, garnish with additional lemon and parsley for extra flavor and presentation.

Borgatti’s Lemon Pepper Pasta is an exceptional choice for seafood enthusiasts.

The pasta becomes a true culinary star during the Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian-American tradition celebrated on Christmas Eve. This feast, known as La Vigilia in Italian, is more than just a meal; it’s a vibrant celebration of family, heritage, and the anticipation of Christmas. It traditionally features seven different seafood dishes. Borgatti’s Lemon Pepper Pasta, with its affinity for seafood flavors, is an ideal choice for this feast.
