  1. Rinse enoki mushrooms thoroughly and cut off bottoms of stems.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook spaghetti al dente according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat, then add chopped garlic.
  4. Add clams and sake. Cover the pan with a lid and steam for about 3 minutes or until the clam shells open, which means the clams are cooked.
