Cannellini, Clams and Mussels
My Cannellini, Clams and Mussels is a versatile nutritious chowder that is both fiber and protein rich! Nutritious Italian white beans, delicious treasures from the sea and organic vegetables and herbs married to a simple garlicky sauce de Provence become a stand alone chowder that can be served on its own with crusty bread and a crisp salad! My Cannellini, Clams and Mussels can also be used as a chunky sauce for a pasta or rice entrée! My Cannellini, Clams and Mussels is a hearty dish for the season. I love it served over a plate of organic rigatoni or bucatini and a light sprinkle of seasoned breadcrumbs.
My Cannellini, Clams and Mussels is so delicious! Enjoy!
