Clam Diggers Spaghetti

  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 cans (7 oz each) minced Clams
  • 1 lb thin Spaghetti
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 medium Onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Basil
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup Parsley Flakes
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated


Bring 5 to 6 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large kettle, for cooking spaghetti. Add a few drops of oil to the water so the spaghetti won't stick together.

In a large skillet, saute garlic onion, salt, and pepper in oil until golden. Add basil, clams, parsley, and approximately one-half of the clam juice from each can.

Blend well and continue cooking for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti until tender. Drain. Divide clam sauce over four portions of spaghetti and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.
