This was very easy to make & tasty but I felt like it was missing something. I think I would add 1 or 2 more cans of clams. I also added Old Bay after trying a bite as is to give an honest review. The Old Bay definitely added some oomph. Thanks for sharing.

Yum ! I didn't have Angel hair Pasta so I substituted small Whole Wheat Shell Pasta. The sauce held it's own, on the heartier Pasta. Also tweaked this with just tiny splash of White Wine. This is so easy and healthy !!!
