This Dish Will Take You to the Amalfi Coast!
Ah, Linguine Vongole e Cozze – if you close your eyes, you’ll feel as though you’re on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, relaxing at a seaside bistro, listening to the waves as Caruso recordings are wafting from doorways and kissing the night air.
This fresh shellfish pasta is simple to make, and is the perfect dish for a small dinner party. Serve it with a fresh salad of arugula and spring mix, dressed with a lemony vinaigrette, a slice of my famous garlic cheese bread. Add a nice tall glass of Pellegrino with a squeeze of lime or lemon. Finish off the meal with a limoncello infused tiramisu for a memorable meal that will make your taste buds dance!
Follow up with a nice cappuccino and the perfect movie – anything Sophia Loren comes to mind (“El Cid,” Man of La Mancha” or “Houseboat”), or perhaps “Only You,” the light and silly romp through Italy with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey, Jr., or even the all-star “Nine,” which was filmed up and down the Amalfi Coast with Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, KateHudson, Fergi (just to name a few)!
