Love clams!

We love to eat clams in the Summer!
This is one of my family's favorite clam recipes,
Littleneck clams in white wine.

It is easy to cook and goes very well with chilled white wine.
We can use this as a great appetizer or pasta sauce such as
 "spaghetti alle vongole in bianco".
Here is the recipe:
<RECIPE ★ Littleneck clams in White Wine >

20 - 25 Littleneck Clams
2 cloves minced Garlic
1/2 to 1 cup White Wine (to taste)
Olive oil
Some Chopped Parsley
Salt and Pepper if you like

1) Wash the littleneck clams very well and soak them in lightly salted water, over night, to get the sand out.
2) In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and minced garlic, and stir until aromatic. 
Add clams and stir for a minute, add white wine then close the lid and cook until the clams open.
3) Season with salt and pepper if you like but usually you don't need so much. 
4) Sprinkle chopped parsley and serve!

Enjoy your Summer dinner "Littleneck clams in white wine"
accompany with very chilled white wine!
