>Spaghetti with clams / Spaghetti aux clovisses

>

I ate this dish last week in a restaurant in Bouzigues, Brasserie Julie, and it was so delicious I had to try to make it at home. It is very different from the Italian dish spaghetti alle vongole, which is also delicious.

J’ai mangé ce plat la semaine dernière dans un restaurant à Bouzigues, Brasserie Julie, et c’était si delicieux que j’ai dû l’essayer chez moi. C’est different du plat italien, spaghetti alle vongole, qui est aussi delicieux.
