Clam Spaghetti

July 28, 2014
This. Is. The. Stuff. 
This pasta makes for an insanely delicious dinner.

Unlike other pastas, it doesn’t call for gallons of sauce to provide flavor. Which is good news for all of us because that means we get to eat delicious pasta without packing on the pounds. It also comes together in 30 minutes or less, and is pretty to boot.

One of my favorite parts about this recipe though is that it is even better the next day as leftovers. The extra day provides time for the flavors to blend together and become extra tasty.

Plus it’s kind of fancy. So that’s cool.

Don’t be afraid of the anchovies! They are not scary. 

Just don’t look them in the eye when you throw them into your pan.
