      This was a perfect recipe!! Thanks <br/>I made a seafood version w/ fresh cod, shrimps, and clams. <br/>I did not use green pepper or carrot but it came out great!!<br/>I served it with a brown wheat bread. <br/>This is a keeper, and a nice way to have chowder without all the calories!!

      I'm not usually one for this style of clam chowder, but then I'd never made it in my own kitchen before, either! I did use a finely chopped red bell pepper here, but other than that, very definitely followed the recipe on down, & we had a very satisfying chowder, one that I'll be happy to make again, thanks to your recipe!

      This is really good. I love Manhattan chowder and very few places serve it around here. The only thing I left out was the green pepper(I like it it but it doesn't like me :) ) , but I may try the red pepper suggested by previous reviewer. Thanks for a great dinner on a rainy night!
