I know, I know. Vongole should go with spaghetti. But what about “celentani” for a change?? Celentani is a type of Italian pasta that looks like a macaroni formed in a helical tube shape. This was my favorite pasta variety when I was a kid 😋 My nonna used to make celentani with fresh, homemade ragù sauce: I loved it so much for lunch after school!
Well, now that I don’t eat meat anymore, a pescatarian version with vongole is perfect too 🐚
