Store-bought clam juice adds great flavor to a quick pasta dish. Serve with crusty bread and a simple green salad to round out dinner.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomato, garlic, and pepper to pan; sauté 1 minute. Stir in wine and juice; bring to a boil. Add clams. Cover and cook 7 minutes or until shells open. Discard any unopened shells. Remove clams from pan with a slotted spoon; add butter to pan, stirring until butter melts. Place 1 cup pasta in each of 4 shallow bowls; top each serving with 6 clams, 1/2 cup broth, and 1 teaspoon parsley.

 Amazing and simple recipe! Tasted wonderful! I improvised, had to substitute mussels for clams due to availability, and added sliced mushrooms and spinach as well for added nutrients. Worked out perfectly~~

This was so simple and easy to make. We loved it! I would have preferred a thicker sauce but my husband devoured it. He has asked me to make it again. It is great for a fast weeknight meal! It was just us two and there were no leftovers.

Good solid recipe. I would recommend adding the pasta to the clam sauce in the end and allow the sauce to be absorbed into the pasta before serving.
