Have you ever tried an authentic clam liguine pasta? Jamie Oliver has done it again. Erika has picked one of his recipes to inspire you to try something different. This incredible pasta wouldn't be complete without a good wine. Erika has selected one of her favorites: Villa Toscano Pinot Grigio. It pairs wonderfully with Jamie Oliver's Clam Pasta recipe. You can also use it in the sauce.

Erika's Thanksgiving Recipe Recommendation
Jamie Oliver is an incredible chef. Erika has chosen one of his recipes to inspire you this Thanksgiving. With the title "The best turkey in the world", it is quite promising. This amazing dinner wouldn't be complete without a good wine. Erika has selected one of her favorites: Villa Toscano Centurion Old Vine Zinfandel. It pairs wonderfully with Jamie Oliver's Turkey recipe, especially with the flavored butter. It is a must to have a bottle of Centurion Old Vine Zinfandel and roast turkey.
Jamie Oliver Awesome Roast Turkey
14-18 Lb higher-welfare turkey
a few sprigs of fresh herbs
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
3 onions , peeled
2 sticks celery
