1 1/4 cups
white clam sauce
crushed red pepper
I made this recipe for my parents 31st Anniversary last night as a main dish. They loved it! I followed the recipe exactly and was left with 2 extra servings of pasta. I will only use 4 ounces of pasta for 2 people next time. I did not mix the clam sauce with the pasta, but rather mixed the pasta with 1tbl spoon of olive oil and put the sauce in the center of the pasta, added some fresh basil and topped it with parmesean cheese. It looks great this way and they loved it! Make sure to use Angel hair pasta for this recipe, anything else is too thick. I have also uploaded a photo I took of the dish I made.
Everyone complained that the red pepper overwhelmed all of the other flavors. Otherwise I would have given it four stars.
I used a can of chopped clams and add the clam juice as directed, then I add shrimp, scallops, and lastly the clams. I season it with basil, and use angel hair pasta. This is so easy and so delicious!
Oh my goodness! So yummy and so simple! I was impressed that such simple ingredients could be this good. I definitely recommend this for a quick, hot meal. Even my picky toddlers loved it. I've never made this kind of pasta before so I wasn't sure what "White Clam Sauce" was in the ingredient list. I went to the jarred pasta sauce section at the grocery store to look for it. If anyone else is confused, I'm pretty sure the recipe is calling for canned clams in it's juice. I used Chicken of the Sea's brand of Chopped Clams and poured the whole thing in with the liquid. It was fabulous.
I'm not a big fan of seafood with pasta but since I had a can of clams, I decided to give it a try. VERY good and I will be making it again but cutting the red pepper flakes to 1/4 teaspoon. I thought it was just a tad too hot. But all in all, I really enjoyed this!
I made this dish and it was GREAT!!!! All my guests couldn't stop talking about it.
This was good. Used can of prepared white clam sauce.
too bland. next time, i might add some chicken stock.
