Ingredients (2 Servings):
- 180g of Spaghetti
- 100-150g of Clams
- A Clove of Garlic
- Extra-virgin Olive Oil
- Sea Salt
- Red Chili
- Fresh Parsley
- Simmer a clove of garlic and chili with extra-virgin olive oil until golden.
- Add the clams to the pan and cover with a lid. Once the clams are open, turn off the fire.
- Boil water in a separate pot and once the water is boiling add 1 tablespoon of sea salt and then add the spaghetti. Pasta needs to cook 2 mins less than the time recommended in the box.
- Drain the pasta and add it to the pan with the clams. Stir at medium heat until sauce is fully mixed with the pasta. If you want to obtain a creamy consistency you can add 1/2 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water. This water contains the pasta starch and will add creaminess to the pasta.
- Sprinkle some freshly minced parsley and drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil.
