    jmelyn's Note:

    This is from the Seattle Times, and was made famous-ish by The Times' food critic for many years, John Hinterberger. Here it is with a few modifications. By the way, the amount of pimento and parmesan or romano cheese are guesses, since the recipe itself doesn't specify.

    1. 1
      Put 1/2 cup olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet and slowly heat. Add the chili pepper, onion, and garlic. Cook slowly about 30 minutes or until the onions are very soft.
    2. 2
      add the basil, oregano, salt and pepper, wine, and clam liquid. Continue to simmer until reduced somewhat. Keep warm. Meanwhile, saute the mushrooms in a tablespoon of butter and add to mixture.
    3. 3
      Bring large pot of water to boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook spaghetti until just al dente.
    4. 4
      As pasta is cooking, add the clams, parsley and 3 tablespoons of cheese to the sauce and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Add olives and pimento, if desired.
    5. 5
      After draining pasta, stir into the sauce and toss. Continue to fry and toss for several minutes--this drives moisture from the pasta and gives it texture and flavor.
