White Clam Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by Aunt Willie

This was very good! I did have some problems with adding the flour -- I ended up with clam dumplings. But no big deal -- just scooped them out and continued on! I did add some flake red pepper and increased the garlic by a clove. My husband has asked me to please make this again, and make it often. Thank you for sharing!
