This dish brings back soulful memories. 1 cube butter chopped garlic 1 small can chopped clams 1/4 cup chopped parsley salt and pepper Melt butter in a sauce pan. Gently sautee/simmer garlic for 3 or 4 minutes - don't burn. Add the clams juice. Simmer very gently to reduce. Add the clams and parsley, simmer gently until the clams are heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over boiled spaghetti.
