Part two of the eagerly awaited dinner is as follows…

One of my favourite dishes cooked to perfection mmmm!!

Fry a lot of garlic in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil until softened

Add pancetta and fry till crispy (don’t burn garlic)

While that’s going throw in the pasta and cook until almost done

Throw in a couple of glasses of white wine and some chopped chillies, and a couple more tablespoons of olive oil and a tablespoon of lemon juice
Make sure the pot is really hot
When that’s all mixed and yummy (goes great on bread) throw in more freshly chopped garlic and the vongole
Shut the pot and leave it for about 5 mins- stirring occasionally.

    Sounds lovely but I didn’t understand if the pasta is still raw when you put it in the pan. Do you cook it in boiling water before hand?

      You cook it but leave it slightly undercooked because you’re going to cook it a further 5 minutes with the other ingredients. Hope that helps!
