A light, non-oily clam sauce best served with medium strands of pasta such as spaghetti or linguine. I've had this recipe for years but don't know where it originally came from.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the garlic and saute until it just begins to turn golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add the clams and parsley; saute for 1 minute more. Then add the remaining ingredients and gently boil for about 3 minutes before pouring over cooked pasta.

This was okay. I would decrease or delete the basil & oregano as it overwhelms the dish.
