Spaghetti with Clam Sauce
Linguine is the classic pasta choice for clam sauce. If you're trying to get more whole grains, however, whole-grain linguine can be tough to find. Whole-grain spaghetti, however, is readily available, and in our opinion, it does a fine job carrying the flavor.Tip: To toast pine nuts, place in a small dry skillet over medium heat and stir until golden (3-4 minutes).
