Yield: Serves 1


  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. finely chopped yellow or white onion
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pouch (3 1/2 ounces) baby clams, drained
  • 1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 2 oz. (one-fourth of an 8-ounce box) Nutrition Kitchen Angel Hair Style Golden Whole Soybean Pasta
  • 1 to 2 tsp. grated reduced-fat Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

  2. Meanwhile, lightly mist a small nonstick skillet with olive oil spray. Set over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes, or until almost tender. (Do not brown.) Add the clams. Increase the heat to medium high. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the excess liquid is completely evaporated. Reduce the heat to low. Add the tomatoes, oregano, and oil. Season with red-pepper flakes.

  3. When the water boils, add the pasta to the pot. Stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and add to the skillet mixture. Toss to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the cheese. Serve immediately.

It was great...I added some salt and pepper and a little bit of cayanne pepper to give it some spice and it was fabulous!

It doesn't say what phase of the diet this is for? How do we find this out?

Very yummy - I even swapped out angel hair pasta for whole grain spiral noodles which adds a fun and more textured meal

Did anyone find this sauce lacking flavor? I'm a real pasta fan and try to control my portions like we hear on the biggest loser but this clam sauce didn't do it for me
