Fresh Linguine with White Clam Sauce

The first time I ever tasted Linguini with clam sauce was when we were skiing near the tiny village of Cortina in the Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy in 1972. We were young, athletic and daring and loved the beautiful but treacherous skiing conditions of that famous resort. It was there where we ran into Penny Marshall and Art Garfunkel in the dining room of the 4-star Hotel Cortina d’Ampezzo.

 
GRILLED SALMON w ORZO, FETA & RED WINE VINAIGRETTE - Great Neighborhood Cooks

Grilled Salmon with Orzo, Feta, and Red Wine Vinaigrette

It’s a great dish to prepare for a crowd.  The orzo salad can be made ahead of time and be served at room temperature.  At the last-minute grill salmon, toss orzo salad with spinach, top with grilled salmon and sprinkle with feta cheese and chives.  I’ve served this for dinner to 12 guests – Delicious & Easy
