Clam Spaghetti

My cousin just ate this tonight and Brody had 3 helpings, Regan 2, and Alexander 2. (Those are 3 kids under the age of 8!!!) Easy, cheap, and yummy!  She found it on a website that was like meals under $10?
2 - 3.5 oz pouches of baby clams (we use the cans because can't find the pouches, we likethe clams so we use chopped and whole but you could also used minced)
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs butter
3 or 4 cloves minced garlic
1/2 lb dry spaghetti (we use 1 lb and there is plenty of doesn't soak in)
1/2 cup chicken stock
Follow directions for making your dry pasta.  Once you have placed the pasta in the boiling water begin to melt butter in the olive oil in a skillet on medium.
Add garlic and saute for 1 to 2 minutes.
Drain clam juice from clams and add along with chicken stock in with the garlic.  Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes
Add clams to the skillet. Don't cook this for too long.
Drain your spaghetti and add into the sauce.
