I tossed together a quick lunch for Kirk and I today.
Pasta And Clams
6 ounces dry pasta (any shape)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dried Italian herb blend
1/4 tsp dried minced garlic
1/4 tsp diced dried lemon peel
Lots of ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 6-ounce can minced clams
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add in the pasta and cook for time on package.
Meanwhile, in a small non stick pan heat the oil over low heat with the herbs and spices floating in the oil. Keep an eye on it so the garlic doesn’t burn. When the aroma is smelling great and the oil is warmed add in the clams along with the clam juice. Turn off the heat and let sit till pasta is done.
Drain the pasta, toss it with the sauce and add in most of the cheese. Stir/toss till well combined and the cheese is melting.
Plate up and top with a bit more cheese and chives if desired.
