Whether you’re new in the kitchen and want to learn an easy dish to whip up, or you’re a seasoned cook in need of some inspo for fast weeknight fare, we got you. Jacqueline Alwill’s healthy yet flavourful take on spaghetti alle vongole, an Italian classic, is a quick meal that’s as easy as it is delicious. She’s swapped traditional pasta for nutritious zucchini noodles and combined them with garlic, briny clams, cherry tomatoes, parsley and chilli flakes.
