The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Firstly, cook the pasta. Boil the kettle, then three-quarters fill a large pan with boiling water. Add some salt – the water will seethe – then coil in the spaghetti. Simmer, uncovered, for 12 mins or according to pack instructions.
Meanwhile, to make the sauce, tip the clam sauce into a small pan, pour in the wine and add the garlic. Simmer for a few mins while you coarsely chop the parsley, then stir into the sauce and grind in a good amount of black pepper.
Drain the spaghetti and tip into a warmed bowl. Pour in the sauce and toss well. Serve at once, with grated parmesan scattered over if you like.
