Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 30 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Prepare and cook 1 kg cockles.

Stage 2 - 15 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Remove all the shells, place the cockles in a bowl, and reserve a small glass of their cooking juices.

Stage 3 - 8 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Cook the pasta for 3 minutes less than scheduled (it will cook again in the pan), then drain.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
In a large frying pan over high heat, pour in 4 tablespoons olive oil and when hot, add the parsley stems (set the leaves aside).

Cook for 1 or 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, as the oil will take on the taste of the parsley.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Pour in the spaghetti, stir for 1 minute, then remove and discard the parsley stems.

Stage 6 - 1 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Pour in 250 g liquid cream and the glass of cockle juice and mix well.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Add the cockles and chopped parsley.

Stir again for 1 or 2 minutes, just long enough to reheat the cockles.

Stage 8
Creamy spaghetti with cockles and parsley
Serve immediately.
Remarks
You could also use other shellfish, such as mussels or clams.

For a thicker, creamier sauce, add 1/2 ladle of starch-rich spaghetti cooking water to the cockle cooking juices in step 6.
Keeping
Enjoy immediately.
