Rasta Pasta Clams

This Caribbean inspired dish is full of Island flavors; pineapples, mango’s, jerk seasoning. For the health conscious, the recipe can be altered to use clam juice instead of heavy cream for a low fat version.


Boil pasta until al dente and drain. Sauté garlic, mango, pineapple, and red pepper in pan. Then add clams, heavy cream, scallions, garlic and seasonings. Heat at medium high temperature until sauce reduces and starts to thicken. Add pasta to pan and serve in large bowl. Garnish with lime twists in center.

Yield:  3-4 entrees

*For a low fat version, replace heavy cream with the reserved clam juice from clams and reduce jerk seasoning to 1 tablespoon
