Seafood stew becomes a sauce for spaghetti

Valerie Ryan for the Boston Globe

New England’s coastline is home to some of the world’s best shellfish: littleneck clams, mussels, and squid among them. Showcase it in two summer classics, a stew and big bowl of pasta. A Portuguese- style seafood stew the first night begins with chorizo and uses plenty of crushed red pepper. For another night, use the seafood stew in a riff on the Italian dish spaghetti alle vongole (with clams). They’re both ideal for a beach menu, after a day in the sun, when you want something nourishing but healthy.
