Again, I don't remember where I got this recipe. Maybe from Food Magazine or Good Housekeeping?
Preparation Time : 20 minutes
Makes 4 to 6 servings
1 kilo halaan (clams)
1 head garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp chili flakes
1 pack spaghettini
1. In a large saucepot, heat 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 slivers of garlic. Add the clams, cover and cook just until clams open, almost 3 minutes. Transfer clams into a bowl. Reserve clam juice in separate bowl.
2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions.
3. In large pan over medium heat, saute sliced garlic in olive oil until light golden. Add chili flakes and clam juice. Toss in spaghettini and clams. Season to taste. Serve hot.
Note: Clams should be coooked on the same day they are bought. If you want to store them, cook until step 1 then refrigerate. Use within the day.
