Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. In a large skillet with a lid, heat the oil over medium. Add the anchovies; cook, stirring often, until the they break down, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until the garlic is aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and stir until it turns slightly darker in color, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and crushed red pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the juices thicken, about 30 minutes.

  • Add the white wine; cook to reduce slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the clams. Cover and cook just until the clams open, transferring them to a large bowl as they open, about 5 minutes (discard any that don't open). Season the sauce with salt and pepper. 

  • Meanwhile, salt the boiling water, add the spaghetti and cook until al dente. Drain, add the spaghetti to the skillet and toss to coat. Top with the clams and parsley.
