    Sounds a bit like a Carbonara... I also like spaghettoni. It's just a thicker, slightly larger version of spaghetti. The 'proper' stuff to have with clams, however, is linguini

    Lol... They're the best bit! That is, when they're filled with all the lovely juice/sauce, created by the white wine, olive oil, garlic, etc, which you can sook out of the shells! Yum, yum

    Hmm. This has got me thinking (and hungry). May pick up some fresh basil and baby mushrooms later for a pasta meal, not sure whether to go for chicken or seafood or just do cheesy veggie .

    Yeah, fortunately we have a Portuguese deli in town, catering for the local Portuguese community, and they sell huge big bags of clams (and all sorts of other seafood) for less than £4!

    Yup, mussels work too, as does baby octopus and razor clams, which then becomes a 'Frutti di Mare' (fruits of the sea) type of sauce, which is a classic in Italy. You can also do it with risotto

    Seafood's the one, Geoff, but only if it's not from a supermarket, as it'll be cack. Have you got a decent fishmonger or European deli near you? Otherwise, I'd do veggie.

    We can buy Clams from our local Waitrose or the fish stall in town at the market on a Saturday but they work out at something like 15 pence each. Still, OK for a treat. The Mussels are available from Waitrose, the fish stall and Tesco - something like £3.50 a bag, which is far more reasonable and we have them often, with Linguini.

    We can buy packs of frozen 'seafood' but it's not the same as fresh fish.
