A very easy to make recipe that has a very nice clam taste. I developed this recipe many years ago and it has been enjoyed by all that have tried it.

This was so EASY and YUMMY! I too, modified it from the original replacing 1/2c of clam juice with white wine and adding 6 medium sliced brown button mushrooms. It turned out great! My honey was very impressed. I would totally make this again!

this was outstanding. I only changed the recipe by adding some more garlic. I used 8 cloves and cooked it a little bit longer by a half hour. I recommend this recipe.

It was easy. and fairly yummy. i found it too spicy (i don't like spicy food at all), and will make it again - but i'll leave out the cayenne pepper. I also recommend using a good jar/can of clam's, or you won't taste it.
