Bucatini + clams with loads of sauce is one of my favorite dinners to cook my family, because it contains simple ingredients, is so easy to make, beyond delicious, plus my family loves it. Many linguini and clam recipes do not conceive enough sauce, finding the pasta absorbs the sauce like a dry sponge. Such a shame, since the sauce is the best part, especially when tossed with a fantastic pasta, such as Bucatini, a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center.
For my Bucatini + clams, I love the addition of chopped clams. In this recipe, I did use good quality canned chopped clams, but sometimes, I for-go the canned calms, using all live clams instead. Either way, it is just as delicious.
One of my daughters cannot eat butter, so I do not add butter when cooking for her. However, I do love the butter in this dish, so adding butter is up to you.
Not that this has anything to do with Bucatini + clams, but I’m off to go meet my Mother and Sister for an afternoon tea at Chado Tea Room. My Sister and I take our Mom to tea every Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, I was too late in making reservations at one of the fancy hotels we normally prefer to go, so I ended up getting reservations at Chado Tea Room. I’m hoping we end up loving this place. Anyway, I will let you know how we liked it in my next blog post. Maybe I will be inspired and will end up posting a tea sandwich or desert from this afternoon’s tea.
