I have to give credit to my sister for this recipe. It is so easy and delicious. Simple enough for a weeknight, but also worthy of dinner guests!! Enjoy with side salad and crusty bread.

This was good. Pretty basic, but good. I used 20 oz mini clams, and it was yummy.

This was a good base recipe. I have done this often but I brown more garlic, chopped onion, and fresh oregano. I then add the clam juice and fresh basil and simmer for 20 minutes. After that I add canned whole clams and chopped and warm. We like sauce so sometimes I add a bottle of clam juice and thicken a little with cornstarch. I agree this is resturant quality with little work. Thanks for posting!
