Spaghetti with Pinot Grigio and Seafood

Ingredients
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup chopped oil- packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups Bella Sera Pinot Grigio
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 pounds littleneck clams, scrummed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups arugula, tough stems removed

Preparation
    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, until tender but not brown. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cook for another minute. Add wine, shrimp and clams, and bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pan, and simmer until shrimp are pink and clams have opened, about 7 minutes. Discard any clams that have not opened.
    3. Add spaghetti to skillet with seafood mixture. Add salt and pepper and stir to combine, then gently fold in arugula. Mound pasta on a serving platter and serve immediately.

Serves
Yields 4 to 6 servings

Notes, Tips & Suggestions
"Bella Sera(r) Pinot Grigio is light-bodied, refreshing and has a hint of citrus - it's the perfect complement to lighter recipes on a warm summer day." - Celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis
