1 (16 ounce) package
2 (6.5 ounce) cans
minced clams, drained with juice reserved
1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh parsley
Very good! Only differences I did was use a can of evaporated fat free milk (gives sauces a faux cream flavor) and about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Defintely one I will make again.
this would be good for children, but i found it a bit bland. much better once i added more garlic and a bit of seasoning salt.
We really enjoyed this sauce. I used apple juice for the white wine as I didn't have any at the time. It turned out great! Thanks, Betty.
Great recipe! My one very small variation was that I added an extra can (10 oz) of whole baby clams without the juice. Highly recommend this one. It is simple, inexpensive, and delicious!
Wonderful! This was my first time to make clam sauce, and it was so good! I cut down on the fat by using only 2 Tbl. olive oil, and skim milk. I read other reviews and decided to cut way down on the clam juice (I used 3 Tbl.), then added 1/2 cup of wine. Very quick and easy recipe. Serve with a side of steamed broccoli and crusty bread. Thanks for sharing!
This recipe is easy to prepare, delicious and the ratio of linguine/sauce is perfect!
The sauce is better if made the day before or frozen in jars then used over pasta as the flavors will have a chance to blend.
Thank you Betty, my boyfriend thinks I can cook, little does he know I just know how to follow directions. ;)
Great recipe, very easy to make and quick too. I modify it a little by adding about 4 tbsp more white wine and then about a 1/2 cup of a light sweet juice just to cut a heavy taste if you don't want it to be too creamy. To make it chunkier, I added a jar of mushrooms and more clams. Also, I tried substituting evaporated milk light another user suggested and it was even better.
Really good recipe, but I recommend using less clam juice and more wine so it doesn't have such an overpowering fishy taste.
