    These are terrific, some would even say, "romantic". From the November 1989 issue of Bon Appetit. I serve this over linguine.

      This was amazing! I used 2 dozen littleneck clams. When we were done with the clams we used toast to soak up more of the broth. I may try less olive oil and butter in the future just to cut back on the calories but it was good just the way it was!

      Yes, these are terrific! Easy to make, too. Just to cut some fat, I on/y used 1 tbsp of olive oil and 4 tbsp of butter. The clams have lots of flavor and look pretty on a platter. Thanx for a new way to pepare clams!
