Simple, Sophisticated Italian
Spaghetti alle Vongole (or just “Vongole,” as we call it here at YABO), is an extremely popular dish throughout most of central Italy. In the Campani region, especially, vongole is a staple dish in traditional Neapolitan cuisine.
We start with oil and garlic, salt and crushed red pepper in a hot pan. As the flavors start to blend, locally-harvested Pine Island clams and chopped clams are added along with fresh basil and parsley. A dollop of our parmesan cream sauce in the pan rounds out the cooking process. This delicious mixture is piled on top of warm linguine and covered in your choice of red sauce, white sauce, or “YABO Style” in a cajun cream sauce.
This dish has been on the menu here at YABO for years! Come by and try it this September.
Suggested Drink Pairings – Try the Vongole with a glass of C.H. Berres “Impulse” Riesling or with a pint of Stella Artois Belgian Lager.
