"This is a super fast and easy recipe. One of my favorites. Even my kids love it. Though sometimes I use 1 1/2 pounds of noodles. Fettuccine can also be used. Tastes even better with fresh baked rolls or French bread and a garden salad. For the special occasion have a nice glass of red wine with it." — Silvia Granger

I made this with a few changes and it turned out fantastic! My wife just would not stop raving about it.
I cut the recipe in half, because there are only two of us. I doubled the garlic and doubled the clams. But the second can of clams were drained. I added some red pepper flakes and also added about a half cup of good white wine.
It turns out to be a very special dish. You could definately put it into your rotation or keep it for special occasions.
I made it exactly like the recipe says. I will not make it again. It was edible but too much like a canned sauce. All the other reviewers changed the recipe. I would suggest you do the same. I would add more mushrooms. I would cook the sauce down - it was too runny.
Very, very good and simple. Like many others, I made this with some variations. I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup xtra Virgin olive oil. I also used 5 cloves of garlic. I added 1 tbl of Old Bay (you may omit any additional salt if you use O.B.). After everything was brought up to temperature, I added 3 dollops of sour cream and thickened with a little corn starch. No leftovers!
We all loved this. I did make a few changes though. Instead of 1/2 a cup of butter, I used 1/4 cup of butter, and a 1/4 cup of olive oil. I also doubled the garlic because we love it. I undercooked the pasta by a minute or two, and added some pasta water to the sauce, to thicken it up a bit. Then I added the pasta to the sauce and cooked it for a few minutes to absorb the sauce better. I would definitely make this again.
This was a fantastic dinner for my husband and I. Since kids don't like mushrooms, it has become our favorite for when it's just us. Get pre-sliced mushrooms and this is FAST.
Very good and sooo easy! I loved the flavor, but the sauce seemed a bit too watery with all of the clam juice added, so I stirred in the parm. cheese while it was cooking to thicken it up a bit. I will definately be making this one again, thanks!
This was a big hit with my dinner guests. I served Ali's Amazing Bruschetta (also Allrecipes) as an excellent appetizer. Per others' reviews I made these changes: 1 extra can of clams w/juice, extra garlic, decreased butter to 1/4 c. supplemented with olive oil, substituted freshly ground black pepper. My own changes: I thickened sauce with flour/pan juice roux, substitued pre-made pesto to taste for fresh parsley, and added 1/2 c. dry white wine shortly before serving.
This was really good. However I did add a splash of white wine which I think is key. So fast and easy, I'll definitely make this again.
