Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. When hot, add the pancetta and shallots. Saute for 1-2 minutes, then add the garlic and rosemary. Saute another 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the clams, wine, red pepper, and lemon zest to the skillet. Salt and pepper; then cover. Drop the pappardelle in the boiling water.
  3. Cook the clams for 7-8 minutes, until they are mostly open. Cook the pasta for 6-8 minutes until just al dente.
  4. Add the cream to the clam sauce and stir. Then strain the pasta and add it straight to the clam sauce. Make sure to reserve a little pasta water. Stir the pasta and cook another 1-2 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss. If the sauce is thicker than desired add a little pasta water. Throw out any clams that didnt open.
  5. Plate and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
  6. You could lighten this dish by reducing or removing the heavy cream.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • If you are cooking with wine, be aware that the amount of alcohol that evaporates could be much less than you think. In fact, researchers found that anywhere between 4 and 49 percent of the alcohol in a dish might remain depending on the cooking method, length of cooking, etc. If you're concerned about the amount of alcohol you're consuming, keep an eye on how much wine is going into your dish!

  • The great thing about parmesan cheese is that a little goes a long way, especially if you're buying the real deal.

Price Tips

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Don't have fresh herbs? Substitute dried herbs, but use about 1/3 less because dried herbs are more potent than fresh.

  • If you find that you're always missing lemon zest, purchase lemon extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • Rumor has it you can freeze whole lemons and grate them while still frozen whenever you want to pump up the lemon flavor in a dish. Next time you have some lemons not getting used, give it a try (and let us know how it goes).

  • Don't have any wine in the house? Red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar can be used to deglaze pans. Chicken/beef broth or grape juice can also be used in place of wine in a pinch, especially if a recipe only calls for a small amount.

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic lemons if you're using them for zest.

  • Some types of noodles (fettuccine, pappardelle, tagliatelle, etc.) are often made with eggs. Be sure to check the ingredient list if you're following a vegan or egg-free diet.

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.
