Fresh Sea Clams Pasta

I prefer my spaghetti cooked with lots of garlic and cherry tomato and with the addition of either clams or shrimps and that's what I did for our Saturday dinner.  Easy to fix and yet delicious...a one dish meal that we both like and as for me , easy job...and back to my idiot box.  A day I can relax and watch my movies and browsing through my two new books....thinking what to bake next :)  Daddy doesn't like his spaghetti with  bolognaise sauce so this preparation is just perfect for the two of us....for once we share the same taste...ahem :p

Saturday is a day I would normally like to cook something more elaborate but becoz I have to cook something more elaborate for pot bless after Sunday service, I opted for something easy for my Saturday night so that I don't tired myself out.  You know to feed a crowd of 60 people can be quite a heavy task even though it is just a dish from me.....but imagine I get to taste at least 25 another reason for not eating a heavy meal yesterday. Have to keep some space for tonight's pot bless :)  Coming back to this is a simple spaghetti dish with ingredients consisting of cherry tomato, garlic, black pepper , sea salt and green capsicum sauteed in olive oil . Mixed in the steamed ocean clams and cooked spaghetti and get a yummilicious plate of ocean fresh clams spaghetti !

saute the cut cherry tomato, chopped garlic, diced green capsicum
with olive oil , add in salt and black pepper for taste..this takes
only 7-8 minutes

add in the steamed clams and wine gravy...mix well

add in the cooked spaghetti  last and mix well

serve it piping hot....delish !

the succulent clams adds flavor to the dish

I can have this everyday and not get bored with it :p
