Adding the ingredients in the right order is the secret to this recipe's success; the ones that take longest to cook go in first. The optional layer of seaweed (available from most fishmongers) imparts a salty ocean essence and keeps the potatoes off the bottom of the pot.

recipe

The flavorful topping on this pizza -- briny littleneck clams with slab bacon, fresh parsley, onion, garlic, white wine, and cream -- is almost like a cooked-down New England clam chowder, concentrated and delicious. Red-pepper flakes add some flash. Clams give the creamy sauce a salty, fresh-from-the-sea essence. They're then used as a topping along with bacon and parsley.

recipe

For really vibrant flavor, marinate your garlic and chili flakes in olive oil in advance of cooking. To complement the meal, serve this classic Italian pasta dish with a bottle of crisp white wine. From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).
