SPAGHETTI ALLA VONGOLE
- Bring a large pot of water to boil and add salt to taste. Cook pasta according to the package. Drain and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
- Set a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and garlic and cook until the garlic is golden. Add white wine, lemon juice, clams, and Oregano Flowers and cover for approximately 6 minutes.
- Remove the lid and begin to remove the cooked, open clams into a separate bowl. Once all the clams have opened (discard any clams that do not open), add the butter and a splash of reserved pasta water to the pan.
- Add the pasta, stirring to coat the noodles. Add the parsley and clams back to the pasta, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately. Mangiamo!
