Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes. Drain well.
Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in a pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add garlic and cook until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add clams, water, and lemon zest and juice. Set heat to high, cover and cook, shaking pan often until clams open, about 6 minutes. Discard any unopened clams.
Add parsley, butter, red-pepper flakes (if using) and toss with spaghetti. Divide pasta and clams equally among plates and drizzle with remaining broth.
