    Lovellama's Note:

    My husband's favorite seafood dish. The sauce is thin and rich, but not creamy nor red. I use a can of diced clams, though the recipe originally calls for 2 dozen cherrystone or littleneck clams, shucked, reserving the liquid. It's up to you on which one you'd like to use.

      Excellent! I followed the recipe pretty closely although I increased the garlic and substituted cilantro for the parsley. Definitely enjoyed by all and will make it again....and again.
