  • 1 Lb spaghetti
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 24 littleneck clams , scrubbed
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • 4 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 7/8 pinch black pepper
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until just al dente, then drain the pasta well.

Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the minced garlic and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is lightly browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add the clams and water, cover and simmer until the clams open and are just cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Discard any clams that don't open.

Add the spaghetti and the chopped parsley to the clams in the skillet and season with pepper. Toss over moderately high heat just until the spaghetti absorbs some of the juices, about 1 minute. Transfer the spaghetti and clams to shallow bowls and serve right away.
