Clams Spaghetti

Introduction:

Clams comes in different shapes, sizes and quality.

Had a sudden craving for clams and instead of cooking with sambal or soup, I decided to prepare the clams to go along with spaghetti.

Ingredients:

1 kilo clams

Half packet Spaghetti

Home prepared chicken stock

Tomato paste

White wine

Minced garlic and chopped yellow onion

Spaghetti sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Grounded Thyme

Method:

Wash the clams and place them in a big basin with some flour.

Do this for a few rounds to remove the dirt and sand from the clams.

Final rinse and leave them in the colander and refrigerate until cooking.

In a pot, add some olive oil and sautéed the minced garlic and onion.

Add your desired amount of Spaghetti sauce, tomato paste and home prepared chicken stock and bring to a boil.

Add the clams and cover the pot.

When most of the clams are opened, add the white wine and mix thoroughly.

Cover the pot again and cooked until all the clams are fully opened.

Prepare the spaghetti as normal by adding salt to the water and some cooking oil until al dente.

Divide the spaghetti into equal portion and scoop your desired quantity of clams and gravy to each serving.

Sprinkle grounded thyme for added flavour and some cilantros.
