Spaghetti with Pinot Grigio and Seafood

Spaghetti tossed with clams and shrimp simmered with garlic, onion and sun dried tomato infusing amazing flavor in this lovely Spaghetti with Pinot Grigio and Seafood Italian dish! It is quick and easy and you can have this dinner on your table in less than 30 minutes!

I don’t know how pretty this dish is. I mean, when I compare it to the photo on the Food Network site, I feel very inadequate. The clams I bought had dark shells (I honestly know nothing about clams) and the reason I bought these specific clams was because the only other clams in the store were these humongous ones!

All in all, this was a pretty darn tasty dish. Grumpy was very happy with this meal as he is a huge fan of clams. The recipe is very easy to put together. It was stated on the site (or on Giada’s show, not sure where now) that this didn’t have a lot of sauce to it, but let me tell you, I certainly had enough and I’m a saucy kind of girl! I didn’t have arugula and couldn’t find any so I went with spinach, and that was good enough for me. The flavor was awesome and I would definitely make this dish again. It also stated it served 4 people, but I think that was an understatement! I believe this could easily serve 6! I definitely say this is a dish to try and if you don’t like clams, just add more shrimp!

    Hi Shelby. I am new on your site. The picture is MOUTHWATERING! Way better than Foodnetwork. 😛 Because you made it from your heart and at home, compared to a lab.
    Koodos! Really love your photography skills.

    I adore this recipe. I love clams but rarely make them. They are so quick and easy, I don't know why. This recipe is inspiring me to buy some and make it
