Clams with Pasta Seafood Ingredients:
Serves 3-4

1 pack clams
Olive oil

1 large onion, chopped finely
1 red pepper, chopped finely
Pasta shells
Chicken stock
1 small tin peeled and deseeded tomatoes
1 bay leaf
A little chopped parsley
A few strands of saffron

* Rinse clams thoroughly under running water as every now and then they might be a touch gritty. If using frozen clams do this after defrosting.
* Sauté the onion, garlic and red pepper in the oil for 1 minute then reduce heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
* When the onion has been cooking for 10 minutes or so, start the pasta cooking in boiling water. Add last five ingredients to the onion and cook on a fairly high heat for 5 minutes, uncovered.
* Drain the pasta and return to its pan. Add the stock and the clams.
* Cook for 10 minutes over a medium heat.
