Spaghetti with Clams & Corn

Fresh corn kernels give spaghetti and clams a hint of summer clambake. Look for minced fresh clams or clam strips at the seafood counter in your market.

Serves 4

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups diced sweet onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels, (about 2 ears; see Tip)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
  • 1 pound fresh minced clams, (see Note) or chopped clam strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Cook pasta in boiling water until just tender, about 8 minutes, or according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid; drain the pasta.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and salt, stir to coat, and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft and just beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Uncover, increase heat to medium-high, stir in corn, garlic, thyme and pepper, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables; stir to coat. Stir in wine and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat.

Step 3

When the pasta is ready, return the pan to medium-high heat. Stir in the reserved cooking liquid and clams (and any juices). Simmer, stirring often, until the clams are cooked through, about 1 minute. Stir in the pasta, basil and parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
