Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 tbsp. olive oil
3 large cloves garlic -- minced
1 cup clam broth -- bottled or fresh
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tbsp. salt
1 lb. spaghetti
2 tsp. butter -- softened
2 (6 oz.) cans chopped clams (Doxsee) -- drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. parsley -- finely chopped
salt -- to taste
white pepper -- to taste

In a large, heavy skillet, heat olive oil. When hot, add garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn, for about 30 seconds. Pour in clam broth and wine. Boil briskly over high heat until foam disappears and liquid is reduced to 3/4 cup. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large pot, cook spaghetti in salted water. Drain well and coat with butter.

Bring sauce to a boil over high heat and add clams. Cook clams for 1-2 minutes. No more than that. They will get too firm. Pour clams and sauce over pasta. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary. Sprinkle parsley on top. Serve at once.
