pasta with clam sauce Sometimes a really quick and simple dinner is all you’re looking for. You don’t even need it to be spectacular – just easy to make and filling. That’s all I was looking for when I decided to make this recipe. And to my surprise it wasn’t just quick and filling –  it was really good too. A perfect dinner option when you haven’t gone grocery shopping in a while and therefore have no fresh vegetables left. : / Not to worry – you can still serve a delicious meal. If you’re looking for a bit of a challenge – skip the canned clams and go for the real fresh ones. I’m not ready for that yet, but maybe you are?
