This Pasta with clams is one of my all time favorite pasta recipes. I kid you not! It is simple as it is made with canned clams, butter, parmesan cheese, dried and fresh herbs and some lemon juice.

You may also like my Chicken Pappardelle Pasta or my Lobster Pasta or my Pappardelle Bolognese also.

Below you will find more of my favorite pasta dishes. But hands down this is my favorite one and honestly the most simplest.

As this recipe takes than 30 minutes to prepare.

Basically you are boiling the pasta and then in another pan frying the clams in it’s juice with seasonings and fresh tomatoes.

Tossing in some parmesan cheese, parsley and lemon juice and vulla.

It is ready to eat! If you do not have canned clams on hand but have salmon, go ahead and use that instead.

And let me know how it turned out? I really have to try it that way someday too 🙂

WHAT IS PASTA WITH CLAMS CALLED

In Italy it is known as Linguine alle Vongole. Which is made with Linguine pasta and fresh clams with the shells.

HOW TO MAKE PASTA WITH CLAMS

  1. First you will want to choose a pasta to work with, my favorite is spaghetti or linguine. 
  2. Then you will simply cook that pasta in some boiling water till al dente, then strain and set aside.
  3. In a medium frying pan add the canned clams with juice, fresh chopped parsley and Italian seasoning.
  4. Along with some butter, white pepper, garlic powder and fresh halved baby tomatoes
  5. Simmer on low-medium heat till the tomatoes are cooked then add in the cooked pasta.
  6. Toss with fresh lemon juice and then your parmesan cheese.
  7. Once the cheese has melted, serve hot with more fresh parsley.

Do not forget the Lemon or Parmesan cheese it really pulls this dish together.

Oh and if you want to make it more fancy, you can strain out the liquid from the clams and add white wine in instead.

Can dogs eat clams

Yes, clams are an excellent source of protein. However if feeding be sure to omit the garlic as that is poisons to dogs.
