Let's Make It
Cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Use slotted spoon to remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
Add garlic to reserved drippings in skillet; cook and stir 2 min. Stir in pasta sauce, clams and half the parsley; cover. Cook 7 min. or until clam shells are opened. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Drain pasta; place in large bowl. Discard any clams that do not open. Spoon remaining clams and sauce over pasta; top with remaining parsley and bacon.
Substitute 2 undrained 6.5-oz. cans minced clams for the fresh clams. Prepare recipe as directed, adding clams to cooked garlic in skillet along with the pasta sauce and half the parsley; cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook pasta and continue as directed.
How to Clean the Uncooked Clams
Discard any clams with chipped or cracked shells. Gently tap any clams with open shells; discard clams that do not close their shells. Scrub remaining clams; place in large bowl. Add enough water to completely cover clams. Let stand 30 min. to remove sand from inside shells. Remove clams from water, then cook as directed.
