Discard any clams with broken shells or that do not shut immediately when sharply tapped. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the garlic and clams, and cook for about 5 minutes, until the shells open. Remove the pan from the heat and lift out the clams with a slotted spoon. Discard any that remain closed.
Remove the clams from their shells. Strain the cooking liquid into a skillet and add the clams. Meanwhile, cook the vermicelli in a large pot of salted, boiling water until al dente, then drain and pour into the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes, tossing frequently, then season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with parsley. Transfer to a warm serving dish.
