My family really enjoyed this recipe. I added a full cup of marsala wine instead of half for more wine flavour. When served on the plate, we added parmasean cheese and ground pepper. I sent a big bowl over to my neighbour as well. :) Thanks for posting!

Creamy and delicious! I thought the blue cheese would smother some of the flavors, but it really doesn' wouldn't even know there is blue cheese in the sauce. I followed the recipe exactly except I sauteed fresh garlic with the onion, instead of garlic powder, and I used 12 oz of clams instead of 8 oz. This recipe is definately a keeper...thanx for sharing!
