Spaghetti with clams

Family Circle has published a great recipe for spaghetti with clams.  Here is what you'll need:

Makes 6 servings

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 bag (9 ounces) baby spinach
  • 1 pound thin spaghetti
  • 2 cans (6.5 ounces each) minced clams in juice, undrained
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • juice of 1/2 lemon, plus wedges for serving
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boiling.  Heat bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Cook 8 minutes, until crisp.  Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon.
  2. Add olive oil and garlic to skillet.  Cook 2 minutes, stirring so garlic doesn't burn.  Stir in spinach and cook 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add spaghetti to boiling water.  Cook 6 minutes and drain.  Return to pot.
  4. Stir clams with their juice and pepper flakes into skillet with spinach.  Cook 3 minutes.  Add spinach mixture to pasta along with lemon juice.  Toss to combine; serve with lemon wedges on the side.
