- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 Cloves garlic - minced
- 1 tbsp anchovy paste or 2 fillets
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 3 cup tomato sauce (plus 1/4 cup water to rinse jar)
- 2 cans (6.5 oz) chopped clams in juice
- 1 lbs linguine - spaghetti - or fettuccini pasta
- 1 salt to taste
- 1/4 cup fresh basil - or Italian parsley
- 1 Parmesan - optional
Add the olive oil, garlic, anchovy, capers and red pepper to a large saucepan, and turn on the heat to medium. When the garlic begins to sizzle, and before it starts to brown, add the wine. Cook until the wine reduces by about half.
Stir in the tomato sauce, clams and juice. Bring to a gentle simmer over low heat. Stirring occasionally. Boil the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain, but do not rinse. Add the spaghetti back to the pot in which it was cooked, and pour over the clam sauce, and basil. Toss with tongs to coat the pasta with the sauce. Cover and let sit for 2 minutes to absorb the flavors. Taste and season with salt if necessary. Serve hot with Parmesan if desired.
