FOOD 101 : Clam & Sausage Pasta

OMG. it's been so long. 
I have stop using social media for about 2 weeks..

Will be doing a food post today..
First time cooking clams, but it turn out pretty well..
Here's my recipe. (serving for 4 people)

1) 1 pack of pasta (spaghetti or linguine)
2) 1 glove of garlic
3) 3 red chili
4) 1 packet of fresh Italian parsley (Picture below)
5) 1 cup of white wine
6) 2 German sausages 
7) 7 bacon stripes 
8) 1.5kg of clams
9) 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
10) Salt & pepper (to taste)

White wine (left) // Italian parsley & chili (right)

German sausage, olive oil & bacon stripes 

Step 1:
Finely chop all three ingredients : Italian Parsley, chili & garlic

Step 2:
Boil water & cook your pasta

Step 3:
Without oil, stir fry your bacon & sausages in a wok.
until bacon turn golden brown.

Then remove bacon & sausage onto a plate.

Step 4:
Using the same wok 
(don't have to wash the wok. The oil from the bacon will give the pasta an extra flavor)
Add in the olive oil
Add in the Italian parsley, chili & garlic

Step 5:
Pour in one cup of white wine

Step 6: 
Put a pinch of salt & pepper 
(don't over season it !! cause the bacon, sausage & clams already are abit salty)
& then add in the Clams..

Step 7:
Cover it with a lid for about 6-7 mins

After 6-7 mins
Add in the bacon & sausage
The shells will open up ! ;D

*** This is when you taste the sauce whether it needs anything extra.
*play with your pasta..

Step 8:
Strain your pasta 

& pour in your clam & sausage sauce...

& then mix it.. 
(some ppl will use tongs to mix it, but mine wasn't anywhere nearby, so i used chopped sticks instead)

The end..

hahaha... hope you try and enjoy your pasta.
Nothing beats home cook food !
