This was the yummiest white clam sauce I have ever had, too!! However, if you're a saucy person, there might not be enough for your tastes, you might even consider doubling the recipe. For example, I followed the recipe exactly, and it gave barely enough sauce for two people; the recipe says it's for four. This is easily fixed though, it tastes delicious, and that's what counts!
