Unbelievable Clams and Garlic

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Little Bee

I got this off of all recipes and modified it a bit. It is absolutely unbelievable! This is restaurant quality and so easy and delicious I swear you will make these over and over! Serve to guests and they will rave! I serve these in large bowls with lots of crusty bread for dipping but this could also be served on top of pasta.
