Top Review by Annacia

I really can't believe that this hasn't been reviewed before now. It looks different from the standard clam of seafood pasta sauce because there in no cream or milk in it. It doesn't need it! and you save those extra calories. This is incredibly simple to make and it give lots of flavor. The pepper flakes heat it up nicely but it now too much. I need to mention that I made one serving and have lunch tomorrow left from it, the serving id very generous. Also, I needed to add much more thickening than ask for, I ended up using about a tablespoon where a 1/2 teaspoon was ask for. To add some protein I included a sushimi stick (crab flavor). I'll be making this over and over. P.S. I forgot to mention that I used multi-grain pasta. The whole grain pasta with the marvelous and healthy sauce makes a meal that not only tastes great but one that you don't even have a single guilt quiver about. :D
