Clam spaghetti is a favorite amongst her grandchildren, we get very excited when we hear she's making it for dinner.Ingredients
1 large can + 1 smaller can whole tomatoes
2 cans white clam sauce w/whole clams
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 box spaghetti noodles
In a large pot, saute garlic in olive oil for several minutes. Do not allow them to brown. Strain the clams from the juice and pour the juice into the garlic and oil, set clams aside. Next, your going to take the whole tomatoes and while holding your hand over the pot, squeeze the tomatoes into the pot. Squeeze them all and pour in the juice. (I know this sounds weird, but it works) Allow this to simmer on LOW for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. If you've got the time it's really great if it can simmer for several hours. Meanwhile cook spaghetti according to package directions
Five minutes before serving, pour in the clams. The tend to get tough, if you let them cook too long.
Caution:Your house will smell sooooo good while this is cooking :)
