This version of spaghetti alle vongole--the classic Neapolitan dish made with clams, white wine, and garlic--gets a delicious kick from a jalapeno chile, in addition to the zest and juice of limes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 teaspoon salt. Add linguine and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes.

  • While pasta is cooking, in a large saute pan, heat oil over medium. Add garlic, onion, and chile and saute until onion is translucent, a few minutes. Pour in wine and bring to a boil. Add lime zest and juice and stir well. Add clams, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and cook until they open, 3 to 5 minutes. Uncover and discard any clams that did not open. Turn off heat.

  • Drain pasta and add to clams. Cover pan and let rest 5 minutes, so pasta soaks up juices.

  • Season with salt and pepper and spoon into individual bowls. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
