Zucchini and Cucumber Linguine with Clams



  1. Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Add the garlic, shallots, and red peppers and saute until golden, approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Add the clams, white wine, and lemon juice. Cover and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until the clams open, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. When the clams open, add the butter, salt and pepper to taste, and the red pepper flakes. Remove the clams. Toss in the cucumber and zucchini noodles and heat until they are warm and wilted, approximately 7 minutes.
  4. Divide among 4 bowls and top each with the clams and the remaining juice. Garnish with the chopped parsley and lemon zest.
