I also liked how this sauce sticks to the pasta-- no more puddles of sauce left on our plates after the pasta is gone!! Very tasty.

At last, a clam sauce that sticks to the pasta! I've been striving for years to make this. I think I will increase the flour to 2 tbs. for a little thicker sauce.

I made a bunch of changes, but the basic flavors were there and this was absolutely delicious. I only used 2 T of olive oil, added two shallots, added an extra can of clams, used the juice from the canned clams, and left out the marjoram. Even with all of these changes, the sauce turned out wonderful and flavorful and it coated the pasta really well. Wonderful recipe.
