   In a large saucepan, heat the oil with the garlic over moderate heat. When

   Steam the clams until all of them have opened, 3 to 5 minutes; discard any
   unopened clams. With a slotted spoon, remove them from the pan and keep
   them warm in a covered bowl.
   
   Stir in the remaining ingredients, except the black pepper, into the

   clams, shells and all, on top of pasta and spoon the liquid over them.
   Season to taste with black pepper.
