Cooking Recipe Spaghetti with Clams.
Clean and wash the parsley, and chop it together with the garlic; then put it in an oval container with high sides, suitable for cooking in the microwave. Place the clams in a colander and keep them for a moment under cold running water; then let them drain and add them to the parsley; also add the oil and place the container in the oven. Program this at maximum power, leaving the clams in it for about 1 minute. Meanwhile, bring up the boil on the stove to 600 g of not excessively salty water. After one minute, remove the clams from the container placed in the oven and set them aside. Pour the boiling water and the chopped spaghetti (even whole if you prefer, as long as they can be well immersed in water) into the same container (it must not be washed). Stir, put the pan back into the oven, always programmed at maximum power, and, after 3 minutes, stir again, cover the pan, bring the power to half and let the pasta cook for 10 minutes. About halfway through cooking, not before, add the clams, stir and finish cooking. Leave the pasta in the oven for 2 minutes, then mix in a large pinch of pepper (paprika if desired), season with salt and serve the pasta hot.
You can also flavor the sauce with a spoonful of excellent tomato paste, which you will combine, at the beginning of processing, with parsley and oil.
