DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bring large pot of water to boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook spaghetti until just al dente.
  • 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.
  • 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.
