Additional Info

  • Ingredients
    220g dried spaghetti
    500g clams in shells (cleaned)
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 tablespoons cream cheese
    4 tablespoons white wine or water
    5 cloves garlic ( chopped)
    1-2 teaspoons dried chili flakes
    1 cup flat leaf Italian parsley (chopped)
    4 tablespoons salted butter
    Salt and black pepper to season
    Grated parmesan cheese to garnish
  • Directions
    1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water until al dente, with a bite. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water before draining.
    2. In the meantime, in a separate pan or pot with a lid over medium heat, melt the butter until lightly foaming. Stir in the chopped garlic and chilli flakes, and cook for 1 minute. Don’t let the garlic turn brown.
    3. Pour in the white wine or water, and add the cream cheese. Pour in the clams and stir, then turn the heat up to high and cover. Let this cook for 4-5 minutes, until all the clams have opened up. Discard any that don’t.
    4. Add the drained spaghetti, the reserved pasta water and the whipping cream to the clams and stir. Let the pasta cook in the sauce for 30 seconds, until thickened and glossy. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in the chopped parsley.
    5. Serve topped with parmesan cheese.
