Ingredients

  • 12

    ounces spaghettini

  • 1/4

    cup olive oil

  • 3

    large garlic cloves chopped

  • 1

    pound cherry tomatoes halved

  • 3

    cans chopped clams - (6 oz ea) drained, and juices reserved

  • 1/2

    cup thinly-sliced fresh basil

  • 1

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4

    cup fresh lemon juice

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • Additional grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta; return to same pot. Meanwhile, heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes; sauté until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add drained clams and basil; stir 1 minute. Add clam sauce, 1 cup Parmesan cheese and lemon juice to pasta. Toss over medium-high heat until heated through, adding reserved clam juices by 1/4 cupfuls if pasta is dry. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired. This recipe yields 4 servings.
