Pasta with Clams

Super easy Pasta with Clams
I have the e-a-s-i-e-s-t meal for you - just 2 boxes!  That's right - only 2 and your meal will look like you fussed, not to mention taste very good AND only take 10 minutes!

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!
