Fettuccine alle vongole recipe

The other day in the market I found some clams with a great appearance although at a really prohibitive price, so that being unable to prepare a dish only with them as was my idea, I quickly came to mind these fettuccine alle vongole.

This dish has the spicy touch of red peppers, as these could always be suppressed if children or someone who does not tolerate it will take it. But if you have the opportunity to prepare it as I put in the recipe do not think about it. He contrast between the sea flavor of clams and spicy Pepper is delicious.
