"The sweet juices of fresh clams mingle with white wine, chile and garlic in this classic Italian dish, to create a fragrant sauce that coats the pasta," says McKenna. "This is one of my favorite suppers to make during the summer, as it's fast to prepare and cook."

Kale Caesar Salad with Crunchy Seeds

"This salad is so fresh tasting and easy to prepare. I like to make the dressing a day ahead so that it's even easier to assemble and serve."
