Another authentic dish from friends in Naples, Italy. So easy to make and so delicious. If only my husband wasn't allergic, I would make this at home.

I love any kind of seafood and pasta. And a combo of bothis great. Pasta Alle Vongole is a classical dish of the mediterranean cusine. This recipe is easy to make and the outcome is great. I didn't salt the sauce, I used a anchovy fillet to salt it and to add some additional flavor as it is often done in Italy in these kind of dishes. Served it with a glass of a dry white wine and with some bread to dip up the rest of the sauce. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
