I made this recently as I was craving it and pictures and recipes were appearing everywhere. It was sooooo good the first night that I made it again the second night.

Clams with Linguine (you could also use spaghetti)

500g fresh clams.
(soaked in water for a few hours so that they get rid of the salt and grit)
a fistfull of pasta. (use yer noggin when measuring)
chilli flakes or fresh chilli chopped
fresh parsley, finely chopped

cook pasta according to direction on packet
5 mins before pasta is done fry up 2 cloves of garlic, but dont brown it, in a glug of olive oil
add chilli flakes
add parsley and season
after 2 or 3 mins add clams, cover with lid and cook till clams open.
after a few mins discard any unopened clams.
drain and add pasta to clams and sauce.
serve and eat with love
