I probably have half a dozen clam sauce recipes that I use regularly, and this will be added pronto to the rest. The sauce has a lovely sweetness from the tomatoes countered very nicely by the dash of lemon. And the mushrooms and green onions add something new and delicious. You're gonna love this! Lorac does it again!
