Fettuccine in Clam Sauce

This dish has such amazing flavors!  It's very simple and absolutely delicious.  It could be served just as it is, or with some French Baguette and green salad.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-8 oz uncooked fettuccine
-1/4 cup olive oil
-6 garlic cloves, minced
-2 (6.5 oz each) cans chopped clams in clam juice, undrained
-1 Tbs butter
-1 Tbs flour
-1 Tbs dried parsley flakes
-freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for topping
Directions:
Cook the fettuccine according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in large sauce pan.  Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds (do not burn it!).  Add the clams and the juice.  Bring to a boil.  Lower the heat.
Melt the butter and add the flour to it.  Mix well.  Stir the butter-flour mixture into the clams.  Add the parsley.  Increase the heat and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat (the sauce will thicken).  Add the fettuccine to the sauce and toss.  Sprinkle with cheese and enjoy!
