Excerpted from “Inspiralized By Ali Maffucci
My favorite pasta meal growing up was my mother’s garlic crab spaghetti. The ingredients were so modest, yet the flavors so vivid. As I got older and started eating out on my own, I discovered clam sauce. Clams have that same light seafood taste, but also have a more intense seafood flavor, which is absorbed by the zucchini noodles in this dish. The garlic clam sauce is wonderful on a hot summer night when you’re surrounded by friends and loved ones—it will bring everyone back to the basics.
