Clams and Mussels Over Spaghettoni – Episode 69

By Patrick

Clams and Mussels over Spaghettoni is a wonderful quick meal you can make anytime. What is nice about this recipe is that it uses fresh tomatoes from the garden and fresh herbs also- Stuff that is growing plenty right now. When cooking with clams and mussels in sauces scrub the shells quickly to remove any surface dirt. Also a little tip, when plating the dish after removing the clams and mussels and putting them over the pasta if more sauce is needed ladle the sauce in. Do not tip the pot and pour the sauce as any sand will have settled to the bottom and there is no need to disturb it.

I usually get 2 batches out of one sauce- take the left over sauce and freeze it- then the next time you get clams, mussels, shrimp, lobster etc go ahead and heat the sauce up and add your shellfish- That makes for even a quicker second meal.

    The Little Kahuna is really growing up before our eyes…he used to run around naked, now he is running without underwear, and shucking clams! A cutie, that’s for sure!

    Is there ever a time that boys like to have their pants on? Also, learned something new here. there are numbers for spaghetti?! WOW

  • zonk

    Yah I saw it… Gary used the word Galaxy to describe his show, and was calling kahuna out, maybe he’s afraid Kahuna is stealing his thunder LOL

    SPAGETTONI?????? That’s a new one on me. Usually the lower numbers are the thicker versions–but not all the same for all companies. I always remember #8 or 9 as being spaghetti, then came thin spaghetti (or spaghettini),vermicelli, capellini, and angel hair.
