In large heavy-bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven, heat 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the olive oil over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add sweet peppers and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt; cook, stirring, for about 4 minutes or until very soft. Add olives and garlic; cook for 1 minute. Stir in piccanti until combined.
- Step 2
Increase heat to high. Add clams; cook, shaking pan gently, for 2 minutes. Pour in wine; bring to a boil. Cover and steam for 1 minute. Add shrimp; cover and continue to cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until clams open wide and shrimp are cooked through. Remove from heat and discard any clams that do not open.
- Step 3
Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti for 7 to 9 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup (75 mL) of cooking water. Add spaghetti to clam mixture, tossing to combine. Transfer to large serving platter; toss with remaining 1/4 cup (50 mL) olive oil, remaining 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt, parsley and some of the reserved cooking water, if desired. Serve with additional piccanti on the side, if desired.
