This recipes uses tinned clams which can be hard to find but is otherwise a really easy meal! Serve with crusty bread.
I would say this recipe is a keeper, however, I had to modify for what I had on hand, then still, I tweaked it a bit. First, I only used one 6.5 oz can of minced clams, but I chopped up about 3/4 cup mushrooms and added that for more "meatiness". I didn't have any white wine on hand (shame!), so I used the clam juice and chicken broth with a twist of fresh lemon juice and a splash of half-and-half to give the sauce some body. I also wanted a thicker sauce, so I thickened it with 2 tsp corn starch and 2 tsp cold half-and-half. The lemon gave it a great balance of acidity (replacing the wine). I also boiled my pasta in a broth/water combo for more flavor. Overall a very quick dish paired with a spinach salad! Perfect! - 25 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This one is excellent. Get out your clams and put away your heavy cream. - 09 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious recipe and very easy. I couldn't find 8 oz chopped clams, only the 6 oz can. Used two of these, would probably double recipe next time. - 07 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
