It is one of the most famous dishes of Italian cuisine. As always, the use of the highest quality ingredients is fundamental. Primarily the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

The “Spaghetti with clams” is asimple recipe that gives great flavor to spaghetti. I recommend cooking !!! It must be “al dente” !!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Italian Spaghetti N.5 300 Gr.
  • Garlic 1 clove
  • Parsley 1 bunch
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil           
  • Black pepper
  • Salt up
  • Coarse salt (for the clams)

PREPARATION:

To prepare spaghetti with clams, start with their cleaning. First make sure that there are no broken or empty shells, they will be discarded. Then pass them against the sink, or possibly on a cutting board. This operation is important to verify that there is no sand inside: the healthy bivalves will remain closed, while those full of sand will open.

Then place the clams in a colander resting on a bowl and wash them. Place the colander in a bowl and add plenty of coarse salt, you will have to recreate a sort of sea water. Leave the clams to soak for 2-3 hours.

After the time the clams have purged any residual sand. In a pan heat a little oil.

Then add a clove of garlic and, while this is flavored, drain the clams well, rinse them and dip them in the hot pan. Close with the lid and cook for a few minutes over high heat.

The clams will open with heat, then shake the pan from time to time until they are completely opened. As soon as they are all open, immediately extinguish the flame, otherwise the clams will cook too much. Collect the juice by draining the bivalves and do not forget to discard the garlic. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water and drain halfway through cooking.

Then pour the sauce into a pan, add the spaghetti and continue cooking using a little cooking water. In this way, you will turn the pasta upside down. When cooked, add the clams and chopped parsley. A last flame and spaghetti with clams are ready: serve immediately!
