Ingredients

BASIC TOMATO SAUCE:

Directions

Place a 12 to 14-inch saute pan over medium high heat and heat the oil until smoking. Add the scallions, the garlic and the chili flakes and cook until soft and light golden brown, about 1 minute. Add the clams and mussels and stir to mix. Add the wine and tomato sauce, cover and cook until clams and mussels are all open, about 5 to 6 minutes. Meanwhile, grill or toast the bread until quite dark. Remove and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with chopped herbs and some coarse salt. Remove lid from clam pan, add parsley and stir through. Divide the broth, the clams and the mussels among 4 bowls, top with bruschetta and serve.

BASIC TOMATO SAUCE:

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft and light golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the thyme and carrot and cook 5 minutes more, until the carrot is quite soft. Add the tomatoes and juice and bring to a boil, stirring often. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes until as thick as hot cereal. Season with salt and serve. This sauce holds 1 week in the refrigerator or up to 6 months in the freezer.
