Course: Main Course
Keyword: dinner, Food, Recipe


  • 2-4 strips bacon just up to your own tastes I’ve done it both ways
  • 1 TBS butter if needed
  • 1 can chopped clams and juices
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 C Parmesan cheese
  • salt if needed I usually don’t need to add salt
  • 4 basil leaves chopped and/or up to 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 4 oz cooked pasta


  • Cook bacon set aside and reserve drippings. You want about 1TBS of grease (use the bacon drippings for extra tastiness and add butter if it’s not quite enough)
  • Saute garlic in bacon drippings.
  • Add clams and juices from can. Cook for a few minutes to heat clams through and thicken the sauce a little.
  • Add cream, cheese, and pepper. Stiring until melted and well combined.
  • Turn off heat and add herbs.
  • Toss in pasta and bacon and serve. Make sure to lick the dishes clean.
