I don't really understand why people liked this recipe. I didn't care for it and I did everything the recipe said. Very disappointed!

I gave this 4 stars because it was a fantastic idea and made a wonderful base for me to change. With the tweaking, my husband and I give it 5 stars. Here is what I changed: 1 cup of rice, white onion instead of red, 10 oz can whole baby clams undrained, 1 cup corn, 1 15oz can tomato sauce, 1 cup milk instead of cream. In addition I also used a half can of diced tomatoes and some crushed red pepper. I also didn't simmer as long. I think clams get rubbery if cooked a long time so I didn't chance it. I just served it when the corn was done which was after about 10 min. Everything else in the recipe I kept the same. Delicious!

This recipe is delicious! I added some red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit, and I think in the future I'll use less cream to cut back the fat content. But otherwise, it was a real hit!

This was my first attempt at soup and it turned out fantastic. As suggested by other reviewers I added red pepper flakes, used the clam water from the canned clams instead of water (you don't need to salt the soup if you go this way) and only used a fraction of the cream. Awesome recipe!

This soup really surprised me. I wasn't expecting it to be as scrumptious as it was. I modified the recipe a bit. Instead of using 1/2 cup of corn, I used a can of corn, water and all. Because of the water in the corn, and the juice from the can of clams, I didn't add the cup of water to the soup before letting it simmer, and it came out perfectly. I also added some hot red pepper flakes for a little heat, and thought the sweetness of the corn and the spicy pepper complimented each other well. This one's so good and so easy to make. I can't recommend it enough.

The best tomato soup that I've ever made.

This was pretty good. It seemed like it was missing something, not sure what though.
