A very quick and easy crowd pleaser! Spaghetti tossed with clams, garlic, parsley, and Parmesan. The kids will love it, adults too! I like to serve with a crisp white wine, a tossed green salad, and garlic bread.

Excellent dish; this has been passed down for generations in my family. The secret to this recipe is adding your own personal flavor! Some of my favorite additions are (not all at once): Red Wine (makes it a bit more moist and adds unbelievable flavor), several small cherry tomatoes, & White Wine. I also like to saute the sauce as instructed, but then add the noodles to the skillet and toss while still heating. This seems to infuse the flavor into the noodles well. Mangia!

This was fantastic, but we made it with modifications: added 4 TB butter with the olive oil, increased the garlic to 6 cloves, added 1/2 of white wine, added a dash of italian seasoning and red pepper flakes and used angel hair instead of spaghetti. It tasted like a restaurant, will make again and again.

I'm giving this 3 stars, because it's pretty basic (but still tasty). I do realize that is the whole point, really. But, I agree with others, I think it could use a bit more garlic (even though I did add more at the suggestion of others here). Maybe 3 big cloves? I also added a splash of white wine. I also think I might add some cracked pepper next time. Thanks so much for a great change!! I would like to add that my 7-year old daughter thought it was a 5-star recipe!
