I love clams and my friends and I decided to have everybody make a clam dish. One of my friends made this and it was better than any thing I have ever tasted. These are the only clams I eat now. Hope you enjoy!

I love clams and wanted a cream sauce. This recipe was fairly easy and very much worth it. I would have added a little cornstarch and water to thicken the sauce just a bit. I also served with garlic bread on the side and the clams over linguini! It was very good! Thanks very much!
