    Anniebanannie's Note:

    A lighter version of a traditional New England dish. I came up with this recipe through trial and error. It is relatively inexpensive and easy to make! This recipe can easily be doubled for more servings.

    • 1 small onion, sliced
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon parsley

      For such a low fat content, you did a darn good job making it taste more "fattening!" It's thik, creamy and chock full of clams. I used the Old Bay seasoning..... I love that stuff in my clam chowder! The corn added a nice touch of sweetness. I added the drained clams at the very end to avoid having them get rubbery. Thanx for sharing your creation!
