  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 2 pounds littleneck or Manila clams, scrubbed
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  1. 1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water before draining. Drain pasta and set aside.
  2. 2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute.
  3. 3. Add clams, crushed red pepper, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup cooking water; stir gently to combine. Cover and simmer until clams open and release their juices, about 6 minutes. Use tongs to transfer clams to a bowl.
