  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus 1/4 cup

Directions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • In a heavy bottom 6-quart pan, heat olive oil until smoking. Add onion, shiitakes and chorizo and cook until onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add Cinzano and bring to a boil. Add tomato sauce, wine and clams, cover and cook until clams are open, about 10 minutes.
