As much as I love a nice hot plate of spaghetti bolognese on a cold autumn day, I must confess that my heart still yearns for the summer months that have passed and yet will come again. Why? Well, I’m a seafood lover and I believe fresh is always best.
Indeed, if I had the choice, I would feast on the fruits of the blue sea every day. And if there’s one dish I’d choose to eat, it would definitely be Spaghetti alla Vongole with Cherry Tomatoes. Luckily, for me I live in the sunny Mediterranean island, Malta, where fishing is a big industry. So, we do get a nice batch of clams at our local fishmonger once every week or so when the howling autumn wind and rain have shied away from brewing up a storm.
After having tried many versions of this dish, some with tomatoes, some without, there was always this one I’d find myself making time and time again. Below is the recipe I always use. Have a look,prepare and taste the result for yourself! You certainly won’t be disappointed!
