View shopping list


( 4 servings )
  • 4 Dozens Neck Clams Little
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Cup White Wine
  • 12 Lemon Juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley
  • Parmesan cheese Grated, to taste
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 Packet Capellini pasta


  • In a pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and clams and toss with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, about 2 minutes.
  • Add white wine and bring to a boil, scraping any brown bits from the pot. Let simmer for about 5-7 minutes till clams are open.
  • Meanwhile, cook the capellini in a pot of well salted water till al dente. Remember to add in ¼ cup of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking.
  • Drain pasta and add capellini to the pot with the clams.
  • Add lemon juice and toss in chopped parsley. Taste and readjust seasoning if required. Top with grated parmesan and serve immediately.
  • Cook’s tip: Raw clams should be closed before cooking. If a clam is open, gently tap it on the kitchen countertop and leave for a few minutes and see if it will close. If it doesn’t, discard. Once cooked, clams should be open. Do not eat closed clams after cooking.
