Smoky Clams with Pasta

I brought home a dozen clams from a clambake with family the other day. I could have just eaten them with butter but wanted to do something more with them. I decided to turn them into a pasta dish.  I sauteed leeks with some diced ham then added cooked pasta, a little white wine and the clams. Topped the whole dish with a little fresh grated Parmesan cheese. It was sublime.
