Recipe #3: Angel Hair Pasta with Red Clam Sauce

I made a fantastic recipe today from my new Sandra Lee cookbook: Angel Hair with Clam Sauce. It has just the right amount of heat and flavor, and is only about 400 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving.


12 oz angel hair pasta (3/4 of a typical box)
1c chopped white onion
1 cup white wine (I used a Riesling)
1-2 tsp minced garlic
1 jar (29oz) tomato sauce (I used about 4/5 of it)
2 cans (6.5oz) chopped clams, drained
red pepper flakes to taste (I have one of those spice grinders and did about 5-7 grinds for mild heat)
dried parsley


Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; return pasta to pot and keep warm.

In a large or deep skillet, combine onions, wine, and garlic. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Stir in the tomato sauce, clams, parsley and pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Serve over the pasta, and top with fresh, finely chopped oregano (optional).

Oh, and don't forget to finish off that bottle of wine you opened to start the recipe!
