Spaghetti alle vongole in bianco

'In the white'. A name for various very simple pasta sauces (just butter or olive oil, or maybe parmigiano, for example), generally favoured by those not feeling well and want something extra easy to digest.

It can also refer to a variant of a pasta sauce (spaghetti alle vongole), where the tomato is left out.

A fish cooked in bianco is prepared with olive oil, garlic, parsley and white wine.
