This recipe comes from "Recipes Even I Can Cook" by Whitney Thomason that I downloaded from lulu.com (http://stores.lulu.com/whitney). I've never tasted anything like it. It's my husband's new favorite. Just wanted to share.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter and oil in a skillet.

  3. In remaining butter and oil, sauté onions until tender-crisp. Add parsely, oregano, basil, garlic, half and half, and about ¼-1/2 cup clam juice depending on desired thickness. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes. If sauce is too thin, add 2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp water. Simmer until sauce is thickened slightly. Add clams and tomatoes. Keep sauce hot.
  4. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti to package directions. Drain. Return spaghetti to kettle in which it was cooked.
  5. Add reserved 2 tbsp butter and oil.
  6. Sprinkle with about ¼ cup parmesan cheese and toss to coat evenly.
  7. Blend in half the sauce, pass remaining sauce separately when serving.
