I was never a fan of natto till I got a little taste of it while dining at Sebo last week.  You guessed it, now I'm hooked.  Since I'm nowhere close to eating it plain, I added soy sauce, sesame oil, chopped kimchi, shichimi, and tons of green onions.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Clams

Recipe adapted from Emeril Lagasse. BAM!

Serves 2-3 people
1/2 pound whole wheat spaghetti
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 cup thinly sliced garlic
1 teaspoons crushed red pepper (I used Japanese chili rings)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch of white pepper
1/4 cup sake (I used Junmai sake)
1 can of chopped clams
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes

In a large pot of salted water, cook the spaghetti until al dente. Drain and return to the pot, and cover to keep warm.
In a large saute pan or pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, red pepper, salt and white pepper and cook, stirring, until fragrant and golden, 3 to 4 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic burn. Add the sake and clams, cover, and cook, shaking occasionally, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and discard any clams that do not open.
Add the cooked pasta, chopped tomatoes, and parsley and toss well to combine and warm the pasta.

...AND for dessert, Three Twin Lemon Cookie Ice Cream!
