      I did a bit of substituting, jumbo shrimp instead of the clams, used chicken broth for liquid had no parsley so used a teaspoon of basil pesto and to thickin further I used 1/4 c of brie cheese melted into the sauce rather than the parmesan to sprinkle over top.....was delicious! Hubby raved about it

      This was very good but I didn't like what the flour did, it was to thick and I had to do alot of revamping to get the right consestancy. I will make it again, leaving out the flour and reducing the liquid till it thickens up.
