In a large saucepan over medium heat, add oil and butter. When butter turns brown, add onion, red pepper and garlic; cook until onions are translucent, about 4 minutes. Add wine and 1 tablespoons parsley; reduce liquid a little. Pour in cream and sherry; bring to a simmer.
Stir in basil, red pepper flakes, and freshly ground black pepper; cook for 2 minutes. Add clams and heat through (do NOT overcook or they will become tough & chewy), about 2 minutes. Stir in cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Add pasta mixture and toss. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and remaining parsley; serve.
