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.
