Elevate your dinner with this recipe featuring Al Bronzo Spaghetti. Fresh clams are sautéed in olive oil with garlic, and then steamed till cooked. The shells are removed and cast aside, and the meat is sautéed with leftover water and lemon juice. Barilla Al Bronzo spaghetti is folded into the sauce with extra virgin olive oil, lime zest and freshly cut chives.
