      I made this exactly as posted, except I ended up using a combination of littleneck clams and PEI mussels. I enjoyed this, but I found it to be lacking somewhat in flavor, despite all the wonderful ingredients. The broth just wasn't very rich. I think the problem lies in the fact that there's too much water. I think about half the water would have been better. I love the ingredients, though (although I could probably do without the carrot, which I found unusual). Made for ZWT 8.
