The tomato sauce was a bit overpowering so I would next time, use 2 or 3 cans, 2 cups of milk(I used milk instead of cream) instead of one( we all ended up adding milk to all of our bowls to eat this soup because the tomato sauce was so strong!), add some chopped tomatoes instead, definitely go with a whole cup each of corn and red onion, and honestly I was disappointed becasue the clams didn't make an impact at all. If you do want the soup to be more about the clams, add at least one or two more cans. But what I'm going to do is save my money and not buy the clams next time and just enjoy a creamy tomato soup. Oh, and the butter--totally useless. Usually, in most recipes, I tend to reduce the butter and I thought about doing that for this recipe and bringing it down to one TB but I was afraid I would sacrifice flavor, so I went ahead and used it. However, since I couldn't taste any hint of it through the overwhelming taste of tomato sauce, I'm sure even sauteeing the onions in a little EVOO would have done the trick. Overall, good recipe, just a little too tomato saucey and not much else.
