  1. Thoroughly clean the clams by removing the sand, put them in a bowl and cover them completely with cold water. Add 2-3 tablespoons of fine salt, mix and leave the clams to soak for 2 hours. After the necessary time, rinse them under cold water and repeat the operation in order to drain the clams perfectly.
  2. Wash the cherry tomatoes, cut them in half and set aside. Then take a large non-stick pan, pour a drizzle of oil on the bottom, put it on the stove and add the two cloves of unpeeled garlic, browning for a few moments. Add the well-drained clams and rinse then cover with the lid and cook just long enough for the clams to open .
  3. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook them for a few moments in the same pan in which you prepared the clams and with part of their cooking liquid.
  4. Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil and cook the pasta, draining it al dente and tossing it in a pan with the cherry tomatoes and clams. Sprinkle generously with chopped fresh parsley and serve.
