Fettuccine with Manila Clams & Marjoram


Inspired by Good Fish by Becky Selengut

SERVES 4 AS A LUNCH OR LIGHT DINNER

When I was a little kid, I knew I had “arrived” in the culinary sense when my dad tapped me to make his signature clam dip. I think, if memory serves, it consisted of sour cream, canned clams, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, and some more Tabasco. Fritos were involved.

This dish is worlds away from that dip (best eaten while watching the New York Islanders play hockey), but chopping the clams brings me right back to my childhood kitchen, standing on my tiptoes and splashing hot sauce all over the counter.

Ingredients

Kosher salt
2 pounds Vital Choice clams, scrubbed
1/2 cup dry white vermouth
2 sprigs fresh marjoram, plus
1 tablespoon chopped marjoram leaves
2 sprigs fresh thyme
10 ounces Fettuccine
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 cup roughly chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh Italian parsley

Cooking

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a heaping tablespoon of salt.
 
In the meantime, in a medium saucepan, add the clams, vermouth, marjoram sprigs, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat.
