i don't generally like tomato sauce, but this was delicious! i used a can of tomato soup and also added a can of minced clams in natural juice, besides the 8 oz, clam juice. it came out perfectly! now let's just hope hubby likes it when he gets home from work!

Easy and delicious. This is a mild dish that could easily be served to anyone. For us, personally, we like more heat so I added cayenne pepper and some Emeril Seasoning. I know...I headed it toward Louisiana, but it was very good. I left out 1/2 of onions because I didn't want to be very onion-y. I think that might have made the sauce a little thin, so next time I will only use about 1/2 of the clam juice. I used light coconut milk. Made for ZWT5.

This was very different, and very good! I wasn't sure about adding clam juice to coconut milk, but it actually works. I made my own (low-fat) coconut milk using Fat Free Coconut Milk (For Recipes). Made for ZWT5, Hell's Kitchen Angels
