Get the Recipe for Jessica Seinfeld's Favorite Summer Pasta Meal
Good food, fashion, and stars were in no shortage at Baby Buggy’s Summer Dinner this weekend in the Hamptons, New York. Hosts Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld (pictured above, both in Giorgio Armani) were joined at their home by a multitude of stylish parents including Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman, Alec and Hilaria Baldwin, and Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick—all there to support the worthy cause.
The intimate Giorgio Armani-sponsored dinner was held to benefit Baby Buggy, a charity founded by Seinfeld that helps provides families in need with essential supplies like diapers, strollers, and clothing for their children. The author, philanthropist, and mother-of-three—who admits she is inspired by fellow moms Olivia Wilde and Michelle Obama—is also a chef extraordinaire.
When it comes to the award for her summer recipe of choice, there is one dish that makes the cut. "My favorite seasonal meal is Spaghetti Vongole, more commonly called pasta with clams," Seinfeld tells InStyle (she previously shared a photo of it on her Instagram account, pictured below).
