Tagliatelle Con Vongole - Pasta With Little Clams

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds fresh vongole or small clams
1/4 of a yellow onion, diced
4 cloves chop garlic as you desire- I use
glass of white wine
4 glugs of olive oil
handful of chopped parsley
chili flakes as desired

Preparation

1
In a large skillet over medium - low heat olive oil, sauté garlic & onions - slowly until translucent. About 7-10 minutes with no color.
2
Add your chili flakes.
3
Turn up heat to med-high.
4
Throw in your washed clams into the pan & saute for 1 - 2 minutes.
5
Add in white wine,cover & bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer & cook 2-3 minutes until all the clams have opened.
6
Turn the heat off & toss in your parsley . Check your seasons - it shouldn't need any salt as when the calms open they release sea water.
7
Serve over al dente pasta and give a drizzle of good olive oil over the dish once its done.
