    This is one of our favorites - with CHOPPED CLAMS. The minced ones I confine to clam dip. I would never use minced clams in this recipe! Ugh. Other than that I have to say this recipe is Divine. As good as Red Clam sauce I used to order in Pittsburgh. Fond memories…… I use 2 cans the size tuna traditionally comes in. Roland brand is good. There are other good ones but we live in the Midwest.

    I added two TBSP of capers and a pinch of red pepper flakes to give the recipe a bit more zing. Also, when I added the clams I included the liquid - the sauce ended up thinner than I wanted but cooking it down would have overcooked the clams. Next time I think I will add the liquid first, cook it down to where I want it, and then add the clams. Of course, with 4 tbsp of butter its going to taste pretty good, but yes, I think this one goes into the rotation.

    I was just putting the recipe away when I thought I should write you with THANKS for such a fabulous recipe. I made it last week to test and it turned out wonderful - simple, elegant and quick to put together. LOVED IT! Will make it again, no tweaks needed. It's perfect!
