Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

You know those times when you don't know what to make for dinner and you want something just a bit different and you forgot to pull meat from the freezer and there are no leftovers that you could try and re-run to the family with some added cheese or sauce?

Me too and that is when I make this Clam and pasta dish. I have been making this for a few years now and it is really very good! This is also very easy to make and all you need to do is "count the heads" do the following for each adult. Small appetites and/or children can go 2 for 1.

Spaghetti and Clams
by the seat of my pants
serves 1, in multiples

1 medium slice of onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T olive oil

1 can minced clams - do not drain
1 "clam" can of white wine
1/2 t thyme leaves, crushed
1 or 2 "grinds" of pepper
salt to taste (I don't usually add any at all)

1/4 c Parmesan cheese

1 oz (or more if you prefer a "dry" pasta) spaghetti
salted boiling water

fresh (or dried) parsley, for a spot of color garnish

Add the oil, onion, and garlic to a small saucepan. Saute for 3-5 minutes on low, but do not brown.

Add the clams, wine, and seasonings. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced by a little more than half.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in the salted boiling water, when done, drain well.

Combine the drained pasta, Parmesan, and the Clam sauce. Toss well. Serve in a shallow bowl garnished with fresh parsley.

Have a wonderful dinner!
