This recipe is one of my all-time favourites. It’s my go-to when I want something comforting, but special, too. There are typically two types of clams available on the market for pasta dishes — baby clams, usually sold in jars or cans, and littlenecks. You might have some variation depending on where you live. Probably, the best clam for this dish is the cockle. About an 1-inch wide, it’s the perfect, bite-size morsel. This recipe comes in two variations – with tomato sauce and without. My variation is with just because it happens to be my favourite. But, try making it with just olive oil, if you’d like.
