Something else.This recipe was just ok the first time I made it. I made it a second time with a few changes and it came out great. I used 5 tbs olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic instead of 2. Two finely chopped spring onions. I used the juice from 1 tin of clams and discarded the juice from the other. I added 100ml of white wine and and a few dashes of dried chilli flakes. Let the sauce simmer for about ten minutes so it can thicken a bit (from the added wine). DO NOT cook it for 45 minutes. The family loved it!-15 Sep 2008
Good recipe. It's not something to rock your world (or get you loads of compliments) but it's good and quick for a night when you have no idea what to make. I usually have the ingredients on hand so I may make it again.-15 Sep 2008
This is a great clam sauce recipe. I had it with salad and home made bread.-15 Sep 2008
