Step 1

Put a large pot of well-salted water on to boil. When it is almost boiling, start the rest of the process. Wash your clams well in cool water to make sure there's no dirt or sand on the outside of the shells. While you're washing them, check to make sure there are no dead clams in the batch by trying to move the shells in opposite directions to see if there's any give or if the shells will open. Live clams will be tightly shut.

Step 2

In a large high-sided saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and add in the garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes.

Step 3

Add the water, wine, lobster base (if using), lemon juice, and parsley. Simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Step 4

Add the noodles to the boiling water.

Step 5

Add the clams to the garlic and wine mixture. Cover, and let simmer until all the clams are open.

Step 6

Drain the pasta and mix with the clams and sauce.

Step 7

Serve hot with lemon wedges and extra parsley on top.
