    1. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil over a high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to the instructions on the packet, or until al dente. Drain.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a lidded saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli pepper and cook and stir for a few minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
    3. Add the clams to the pan and pour in the wine, shake the pan to ensure the clams heat through evenly. Cover and cook on a high heat until they fully open, about 4 to 6 minutes (discard the unopened ones).
    4. To the pan, add the cooked and still warm pasta, butter, and mix. Season to taste then sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
