I’ve been cooking – I swear! I’ve just been busy, and unmotivated to turn my computer on (blogging on an iPad just doesn’t cut it).
The May 2011 issue of Bon Appetit is out and boy, is it good! Again, filled with multiple recipes that made me excited. My mom and I decided to make Spaghetti alle Vongole this week, given that we are both in a cooking shell fish experimental phase and my Mom lives on the Cape (super fresh seafood). We headed to the Clam Man for two pounds of little necks.
We decided to go the homemade pasta route since this tastes better than boxed.
If you’re looking for an easy, homemade pasta recipe check out Lidia Bastianich’s poor man’s pasta.
Freshly scrubbed little necks.
There is nothing more satisfying in this recipe than hearing the pop, pop, pop of the little neck’s open up in the pan. They tasted just like the Atlantic ocean (which you may or may not think sounds palatable). That said, minimal salt is needed and this recipe definitely does not need cheese!
And the finished product.
