One of our CSA members, Michelle at Find Your Balance Health offered to share a recipe with us, so please enjoy!

 linguine Linguine with clams (and a top secret healthy ingredient or two)


-1 lb. whole wheat linguine pasta
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-2 shallots, minced
-1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
-6-10 oz. baby clams packed in olive oil
-14 oz. strained tomatoes
-4 cups vegetable broth
-4 leaves tuscan or green curly kale, finely chopped (stems included)
Top secret ingredient: 1/4 cup dried wakame crumbles


In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic, shallots and crushed red pepper. Stir and cook until garlic barely turns golden. Then add clams, tomatoes and broth. Bring to a boil. Add kale and wakame. Simmer 45 minutes. Add salt if needed (depends how salty your broth is.)
In the meantime, cook pasta according to package directions. Serve hot, topped with a generous amount of clam sauce and an optional sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
