Spaghettini VongolePrint Recipe
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- 150 ml dry white wine
- 1 kg vongole, washed
- 1 x 400g 400g MUTTI Cherry Tomatoes
- 400g spaghettinni
- 1 handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
- Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.
- Meanwhile, gently head olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and half the chilli and cook until garlic is fragrant, around 1-2 minutes.
- Add the vongole, wine, and tin of MUTTI Cherry Tomatoes, stir to combine. Cover with a lid and cook until the vongole start to open, around 2-3 minutes. Remove the lid and using a slotted spoon, fish the vongole out, discard any vongole that didn’t open.
