      Great meal. I served with Basil Pesto bread and it was wonderful. Would be great for Christmas Eve.

      WONDERFUL! I made this with a head of fresh picked garlic, extra cremini mushrooms, the juice from both cans of clams, vermouth, and added coarse salt. I thought I would want butter or cream in the sauce but it was FLAVOR FABULOUS as is. I also used a high fiber whole grain thin spaghetti. I think this is the best clam sauce I have ever tasted including from restaurants. Made for the ZWT4.

      Really good clam sauce recipe! I did use linguini instead of spaghetti and I also subbed in some fresh steamer clams for one of the cans of clams plus I also added a 10 oz can of baby clams. Really, can you have too many clams in clam sauce?? LOL. I used the red pepper flakes which I thought was a great touch. Thanks!! Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
