Step 1Cover the clams with cold water and 1 tbsp of salt and leave for 5 minutes. This helps to get rid of any sand that may be inside them. In a large saucepan (one that has a fitted lid), heat 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the anchovy and garlic and cook until golden. Slightly crush the tomatoes with a fork and add to the garlic. Simmer for 10 minutes then season. Cook the pasta following the pack instructions.
