1 kg vongole (clams)
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, halved
1-2 dried chillies
200 ml white wine
350 g spaghetti

place the vongole with the halved red pepper in a bowl of cold water and put aside for an hour.
throw away the water, the red pepper and all clams that are broken or open shells that remain open after a sharp tap.
cook het spaghetti until almost al dente in salted water.
about 5 minutes before the pasta is almost al dente,  heat 3 tbsp of olive oil in a large pan with a lid, add the garlic with some salt and pepper and  crumble in the dried pepper.
stir everything around, then add the vongole and wine.
put the lid on the pan for 3-4 minutes, then all the clams should have openend, get rid of any clams that haven't.
