You will need:

  • Olive oil
  • Chopped garlic
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • Clams so fresh they’re still spitting at you

It’s very important to rinse and soak your clams for some minutes in water. Throw that water away. Repeat.

Chop your tomatoes. Make someone laugh by placing one in each cheek and trying to speak 🙂

Boil water and prepare your linguine until slightly undercooked.

Heat a pan and place your olive oil, garlic and tomatoes.

On the left hand side of the colander you can observe the tongue-out action of the clam!

When the tomatoes are cooked, add the parsley and clams. Cook and stir for a couple of minutes on the pan and then cover for 3 minutes. Add pepper to taste.

Drain and mix everything with the linguine and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve!
