Casarecce alle Vongole (WHAT)

Casarecca is a type of Italian pasta.  Short, twisted, folded in on themselves.  The name means “homemade.”

Reminds me of DNA helixes.

While the pasta is excellent for thick meat sauces, it failed here to carry the lighter clam sauce, a task better accomplished by longer noodles, such as linguine or spaghetti.
