"A very quick, simple clam sauce to serve with any light pasta. I always serve it with farfalle. This has been one of my family's favorite pasta recipes for years, and I always serve it with buttery garlic bread."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Wow! What a nice change from those sauces loaded with butter and cream. This was great with a salad and garlic bread. Be sure you let the sauce reduce at a slow boil to let the flavors mingle. I will make this again and again. Thank you for sharing!
This was awful! The dried oregano overpowered the other ingredients. The only way I could salvage this was to add melted butter and lemon juice. Only then was it passable. Perhaps fresh oregano would have been better.
This sauce was great/I added some basil but I dont think it needed it. You didnt say when to add the garlic so I added it with the clams and sauteed them together. I used orecchiette pasta/
i added white wine, lemon and mushrooms very tasty
Easy fast and most of all good. You need to go for it and add about a half of stick of butter.
This recipe was AWESOME but I made one mistake...I only had 2 cans of clams instead of 3 so the spices were a bit overwhelming at first. Fortunately I had some marscapone left over from another recipe and added that. Turned out absolutely delicious!
Awesome and super easy! I also added a little lemon for some acidity.
Will now become a regular on the dinner table.
