This is a light, delicious clam sauce in a white wine sauce. I used 1/2 of a very large (51 oz) can of chopped clams, which I bought at a warehouse store, and a moderately good white wine. I used the hollow tubed thick spaghetti, perciatelli, so the flavor of the sauce permeates the pasta. Prepare your ingredients for the sauce while the water is boiling. After the water for pasta is boiling, this recipe takes only minutes to put together. I adapted this recipe from one given to me by a friend whose mother was an embassy chef.
