John Hinterberger's Clam Spaghetti
This recipe from John Hinterberger, a beloved food writer for The Seattle Times, is a family favorite and is made from ingredients commonly found in our pantry. With the addition of a salad and nice crusty bread, we have a delicious and satisfying family meal on the table in about an hour.
As with any recipe, using fresh ingredients is preferred but this recipe calls for canned clams. And don't stress out if you don't have some of the ingredients. Fresh basil can be substituted with dried basil; fresh mushrooms can be substituted with canned mushrooms; and if you don't have fresh parsley, you can leave it out.
