- 15 ounces diced tomatoes
- 2 (15 ounce) cans clams
- 1 sprig parsley, snipped
- In deep pot saute bacon till crisp.

- Add potato, celery, water, salt and pepper to hot water. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Have been making this for a few years now for lent (minus the bacon of course) and it is excellent! Thank you for posting this and sorry it took so long to rate and comment.
