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.

This is the best clam sauce I ever tasted . My family absolutely loves this. I make this at least once a month. The only thing I did differently was use fresh oregano from my garden and ommited marjoram.

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.

I really liked this recipe. It was a very easy recipe, perfect for a lovely weeknight meal. My kids who are the BIG clam fans really enjoyed this. Thanks for a good meal!

This was great, we doubled the recipe. Even the DH and DD who really don't care for clams, they still cleaned there plate. I LOVED IT!! Next time I might try add half and half, or cream to give it a creamy flavor.

This was quite good and probably would have been better if I had followed the directions as written (I added the flour before the garlic--don't do that! There won't be as much garlic flavor.). I didn't add additional clam juice--just the juice from the cans of clams--but added a bit of clam base for extra clam flavor.

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.

My oldest DS loves white clam sauce and when I made this he said it was the best ever! I have had several recipes but none so easy and soooo... good!!! A real keeper in this house. Thanks! : )

This white clam sauce was so easy to make! I followed the recipe except I used a can of Bumblebee baby clams. I made the sauce ahead of time using the clam juice from the can. When it was time to eat, I added the clams and reheated. My family raved over it and would like to have this dish once a week.
