Fregula with Clams and Tomatoes

bombedpop:

Love this! This is my 2nd time making. I use Rustichella d`Abruzzo brand of fregula. MY changes are to steam the clams in a mix of wine and water, 8 cloves garlic + 1 whole onion, add a zucchini and cook the tomatoes and zucchini with the onion/garlic, 2 cups fregula, 36 clams, 2 bottles clam juice (if needed, I did the 1st time, did not the 2nd,). Also added some basil since I have it growing.  Try it!

Spaghetti or linguini with clams is a very popular dish in most Italian restaurants, wherever in the world you may be dining.  The Italian island of Sardinia has its own version of pasta and clams known as Fregula (Fregola) Sarda con vongole. The dish can be found on the menu, whether you are in the tiniest seaside osteria or a fine resort restaurant.

Fregula Sarda is a pasta made from semolina rolled into rough, porous balls that are dried and then toasted until golden. They resemble couscous but are larger and heartier with a nutty taste. Once cooked they will have doubled in size with a chewy texture. The pasta can be found in Italian markets, specialty stores or online.

    Happy to hear that you have made my recipe not once but twice. I always enjoy knowing when someone likes a recipe enough to give it a try. Like the addition of zucchini. Thank you for the reblog.
