This is one of my favourite pasta dishes but oddly, we’ve never cooked it. I’ve been thinking a lot about quick dishes lately as we both often get home late and this seemed ideal; and ideal it was – quick and tasty which is exactly what we were trying to achieve.

Fry some garlic and chilli until the garlic starts to brown – we used one whole chilli and one large clove of garlic (next time we’ll use two cloves). Add the clams (400g) and a glass of white wine. Put a lid on the pan and cook until the clams open. Serve with spaghetti and some fresh parsley.

This is the first entry into our new category: Dinner Diary Express. I’ve slightly stolen the name from Nigella’s recent TV series but don’t worry, we won’t be buying jars of curry paste or canapes from the deli and passing them off as our own 🙂

    Clams! I haven’t seen them for sale anywhere though, did you get them from a fishmonger? I love that pasta bowl, can you share where you got it from?

    Hi L,

    We did get them from a fishmonger, we have a branch of Fishworks near us and they have a really good selection.

    The pasta bowl is just from Whittards, it’s enormous though so we just use it as a serving bowl. We’ve got one with a red inside too, they’re good for photographing – one of the best bits about blogging is that you *need* lots of plates and bowls 🙂
