spaghetti alle vongole in bianco (long island littlenecks)

We had a lot of clams (27), with only 10 ounces of a great spaghetti, but, hey, they were smaller (littlenecks)  than we sometimes have with this dish, so there’s that.

It’s curious however that we’ve found less clam and more pasta does nothing to compromise the flavor of this dish, and in fact less might even be preferred, but we won’t complain, especially when the bivalves are as fresh and delicious as these were.
