Spaghetti with Clam Sauce

So mom and Alan are coming over tomorrow for lunch. I don't really feel up to heading out to the shops so I'll be cooking from supplies. Therefore, I will be making spaghetti with clam sauce. Life doesn't really get much easier than this.

Serves 2-4 depending


1 large chopped onion
1 or 2 crushed garlic cloves
olive oil
salt pepper
1 or 2 cans of baby clams
chopped parsley (not essential)
healthy glug of white wine (4-8oz.?)
2 tbsp butter

while cooking spaghetti...

saute onions and garlic until soft. add some salt and pepper then add the clams and white wine and continue to simmer until the sauce looks right.

drain spaghetti when cooked and add to sauce. Add butter to melt in and then add fresh parsley. Toss and serve.
