To prepare spaghetti with clams, start by cleaning them. First make sure that there are no broken or empty shells, they will be discarded. Then beat them on the sink, or possibly on a cutting board. This operation is important to verify that there is no sand inside: the healthy bivalves will remain closed, while those full of sand will open. Then place the clams in a colander resting on a bowl and rinse them. Place the colander in a bowl and add plenty of coarse salt, you will have to recreate a sort of sea water. Leave the clams to soak for 2-3 hours. After this time the clams will purge any residual sand.
