Recipe by Prada Contessa

On a trip to Sicily I bought a package of this stuff called Sa Fregola Sarda, and its basically small couscous-sized pasta that's been toasted. I had no idea how to cook it, but there was one recipe printed on the back of the package so I'm copying here in case anyone is looking for it. You could probably use couscous instead.

  1. Drop the pasta slowly in to the boiling broth/water, mix and cook for 6-8 minutes. At the same time, in another saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the garlic. Cook just till slightly softened, add the chili flakes, then add tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Cook clams in another pan with a drop of oil until they open and add them to the tomato sauce. Add the clams and fregola to the tomato sauce. Add the parsley and salt to taste. Serve hot.
