The combination of clams and zucchini is typical in Naples and the surrounding area. The sweet flavor of zucchini with peppery, savory clams is a match made in heaven. Just like in the classic clam sauce, the pasta finishes cooking in the liquid the clams release, imbuing it with clam flavor. The most flavorful and tender clams are littleneck or similar small clams such as manila clams, Cedar Key, Florida clams, or mahogany clams from Maine.
