    I am not sure if this is Greek or not but it was inspired by my Greek mother-in-law's Kokkinisto. Serve with rice or thin pasta then sprinkle with feta.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1/2 cup diced onion
    • 2 large stalks celery, diced
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 (800g) tin peeled and diced tomatoes
    • 1 (185g) tin tomato paste
    • 2 (215g) tins whole baby clams, undrained
    • 4 bay leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    1. In a large saucepan saute the onion, celery and garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil until tender.
    2. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and clams. Season with bay leaves, chilli flakes, oregano, salt and pepper to taste.
