Drain the beans and set aside.
Wash the clams with cold water and place them in a bowl with plenty of salt to help cleaning.
Heat the oil in a medium frying pan and when hot add the garlic and onion and stir until soft. Add the tomato and bay leaf and fry for a few minutes. Add the wine, water and clams drained, cover and gently shake the pan over high heat for 3 minutes or until the clams are open.
Uncover the pan and add the drained beans and pepper and stir gently for 5 more minutes.
Try the food and add salt only if it’s needed. Discard any closed clams. Serve garnished with the parsley.
