In case you can't find the fregula pasta at your grocery store, you can use some tiny soup-pasta or even make some! Otherwise, since this pasta variety is very similar to couscous and bulgur, you can substitute either of these two products.
Serve with a fish-based main course.
Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay or Pinot gris.

Fregula with clams and tomatoes is a very typical Sardinian dish. The fregula pasta, in fact, is traditionally made on this beautiful sunny island by rubbing durum wheat flour together with water in a terracotta bowl, until it sticks together forming little balls of 2 to 6 mm each. It resembles couscous a bit and can be replaced by it too, but it's also very easy to make at home, and many recipes can be found in the internet. Enjoy this dish at the beginning of a fish-based meal and get that holiday feeling for a while!
