Spaghetti with Clams and Tomatoes

Kitchen Dreaming


I prepare this similar to Mussels in White Wine Sauce. I first steam the clams and then use the broth to cook the tomatoes, garlic, parsley and butter. It produces a wonderful sauce which we soak up with crostini.

Serve with a salad or some extra vegetables added in and this 20 minute meal never fails to disappoint. Smaller portions can be served as well for appetizers.
