    Wife-w-kids's Note:

    This is a heavily modified recipe from "The New Italian Cooking" book by Margaret and G. Franco Romagnoli. Theirs does not have spinach, and I needed to add vegetables to the family's meals. I've changed it enough that when asked for the recipe I cannot copy it from the book.

    1. 1
      Thaw, drain and squeeze chopped spinach. If you don't get the spinach mostly dry, the sauce is wet, runny and rather icky. !Raw spinach does not work in this recipe!
    2. 2
      Melt butter in sauce pan.
    3. 3
      Add olive oil and garlic.
    4. 4
      Add spinach, cook until warmed through (approximately 5 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add clams and juice, simmer for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      remove from heat, serve over 3/4 pound pasta noodles with bread crumbs and cheese as toppings.

      ***MADE FOR MY 3-CHEFS 2009*** This was FANTASTIC! I have had clam dishes similiar to this, but never with spinach. Instead of bread crumbs, I made and used Garlic Croutons for this dish. I used the parmesan cheese, which in my opinion, it complimented the dish perfectly. Thanks Wife-w-kids for this great recipe.
