Recipe by Chef John
"This pasta dish is always a best-seller at Italian restaurants, but very few people try to make it at home. The sauce only takes about 10 minutes to put together. By then your pasta will be cooked and you'll be ready to enjoy this classic dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Simple and impressive. This is so delicious, it will go into my rotation as a budget friendly family favorite. Lovely enough for company dinner too. Assemble ingredients early in the day for a quick dinner. I used canned clams and decorated the dish with a few steamed fresh clams just to make it "purdy". :) Just a heads up....cook your pasta according to the package instructions (my brand said 9 minutes). Thanks Chef John! You rocked it again!
This recipe really brings out the flavor of the clam and makes a great sauce. We served the sauce over whole wheat pasta, which complimented the earthy flavor in the clams and anchovies. We did add some mushrooms and onion to round out the flavor. We will definitely make this again - it was my husband's favorite of all the things I've made from this site!
