This recipe uses staple foods that I keep stocked in my cupboard. It’s quick to put together and it has been one of my children’s favorite dishes. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese. This recipe also works well in diabetic menus.
8 ounces uncooked fettuccini noodles (eggless)
3 cans (6.5 ounces each) minced clams, 2 drained and 1 not drained
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. Return noodles to pan and add remaining ingredients. Heat thoroughly. Turn off heat. Cover and let set until liquid is absorbed, or if you prefer more moisture, serve immediately.
