Regions of Italy have crossovers in their cuisine and also many differences. Northern, central, and southern Italy have specialties unique to their own region, yet still share many Italian ingredients and traditions. Southern Italy is known for seafood and pasta which is served as part of every meal. I love how hot red peppers are used, making most foods quite spicy!
Spaghetti alle Vongole (Spaghetti with Clams) is simple and absolutely delicious. This is a very traditional dish of southern Italy. It is quick and easy to make and full of flavor. Spaghetti and clams are the two main ingredients, and you can add a variety of spices and other foods to make it your own.
