Italian Clam Soup Recipe
Zuppa di Vongole



  1. Scrub the clams and rinse carefully under running water.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over a medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic sauté over medium heat for about 30 seconds.
  4. Add the water, tomatoes, and wine and lower the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the clams and the salt, cover, and cook for 5 - 10 minutes over a medium-high heat. (The shells should be open after this cooking period. Do not eat any clams that have not opened.)
  6. Add the parsley, stir, and serve.

Note: You don't need much to add to this soup. A green salad and garlic bread are sufficient.
