Surf clams have a wonderful flavour that add an interesting touch to your meal. When building your marinara mix make sure you add these tasty morsels or cook them with your favourite pasta and tomato based sauce. Choosing a wine to accompany the meal depends on the style of preparation. A light style Grenache or pinot noir is perfect to accompany the spaghetti marinara.
