Very very delicious! I have to say the sauce was really good. The combining of clam juice & wine reduction with the alfredo sauce made the ingredients marry so well. It really pulled the clam flavor all the way through the sauce. I thought at first it was going to be really runny but as it turns out, it wasn't. The red pepper flakes gave it a nice heat at the end, but isn't totally neccessary at all, especially with minor children. The only thing I felt that needed more of...was the clams. my cans were 6.5oz cans not 10 oz so for the clams it's self I used 3 cans and only because it look like sauce with a few pieces. And I totally watched how much reserved clam juice I needed because the cans were a total of 13oz, not counting the 3rd can of reserved juice. But however, I'd make this again in a heartbeat. Very well paired with whole grain Linguine noodles. TY grainie.
Nice easy twist on the boring jarred alfredo sauce. The hubby wasn't overly impressed by it, yet he inhaled it! I would use more wine next time. I topped with shrimp and broccoli. I would make this again.
Made this last night and I must say: we all enjoyed it. Small change: made the Alfredo myself. Otherwise, recipe is excellent as is. Thanks so much.
BEST clam sauce I've ever made. I did make a few small adjustments which kicked it up a notch- BACON!!! And mushrooms. Instead of using butter and olive oil, I just fried up about 5 slices of bacon (chopped into pieces before frying). Then added the onions to the bacon grease and bacon pieces, then added fresh mushrooms roughly chopped, then garlic, etc.. Also, I squeezed 1/2 a lemon to the clam juice and wine reduction. The Alfredo sauce is genius and the red pepper flakes add the perfect amount of spice. Phenomenal!!
I love this recipe. It is so easy, fast and tastes wonderful. Only changes I made was to leave out the wine and used 2-6.5 oz cans of clams instead of one 10 oz. We will definitly make this again!
I really enjoyed this quick, tasty meal. I used the Classico Alfredo sauce and it was perfect. I only used a dash of the red pepper flakes and added some parsley for some color. I did have to make about 12-14 ounces of pasta to use up all the sauce, 8 oz was not enough in my opinion. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, using 3 cans of Snows Chopped Clams, using all the juice from the cans to reduce with the wine. Really good recipe, dare I say restaurant quality? Thanks grainie for the recipe.
Outstanding. I doubled the crab meat. I cooked the shrimp in a garlic butter sauce. I added a touch of white wine (about 1/4 cup).
This was SO good!! Added more clams and added mussels. Yummy! Next time I might add some veggies but was so good without and served with salad and bread.
