Spaghetti and Clams Recipe - Updated

Friday, March 14, 2014

Hi friends, back in February of 2013 I shared with you a recipe for Spaghetti and Clams and I would love to share it with you again.  This is a quick and easy recipe and it's a family favorite in my house.

Spaghetti and Clams Recipe


1 16 oz. package of Spaghetti or Whole Wheat (any brand)
1 6.5 oz. can of Snow's Chopped Clams in Clam Juice
4 garlic cloves - chopped
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
dash of salt and pepper


In a big sauté pan add olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes.  In another big pot filled three quarters of the way with water add salt and bring to a boil.  Follow the package directions to cook the spaghetti.  Meanwhile, sauté the oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes.  When the garlic starts to brown add in the clams with the clam juice and sauté until the pasta is cooked.  Drain the spaghetti and add to the clams.  Mix together and serve with grated cheese.

NOTE:  If you do not like clams, you can substitute the clams with shrimp or any other seafood that you like!

This recipe would be great served with Italian or Garlic Bread and a Salad.  I hope you try this recipe and let me know how you liked it.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and see you all next week!
