Pasta with Clams
Just take 4 oz. of angel hair pasta cooked to directions, next prepare a box of Trader Joe's Steamer Clams and prepare as directed. Combine the two and viola dinner is done!
Now, of course, you must like clams :-) We found that one box was good for two people. I also tossed the pasta in 1 T of olive oil when it was done to prevent it from sticking. The clams are cooked, placed on top of pasta and divided the juice between the 2 dishes. It you don't live near a TJ's you might find something similar in your grocery store.
This is all you will have left...
If you want to make it a complete meal, prepare a side salad. For this one I used spring greens topped with candied pecans, gorgonzola cheese, shredded carrots, celery and craisins. Use your favorite dressing - I used Trader Joe's Pear Champagne Vinaigrette (only 45 calories per 2 tablespoons).
The DIY Guy was very happy with this meal! I'm going back to TJ's for more clams - I think they will be good to have on hand when we need a quick meal!
