Excellent flavor! We are garlic lovers so I loaded it up with extra garlic. I also used 2-10 oz cans of baby clams 1/2 lb of salad shrimp (will go to medium size next time) and 1 lb of scallops. Seemed like a lot of seafood when first mixed but wished for even more when we served it up. Read More

This recipe has promise but it's terrible as listed. It was far too salty and "clammy" (don't get me wrong i LOVE clams it's just that the entire dish tasted like clams.) I think i'll make this again but modify it severly! Like not adding olives (they were big time yuck!) and adding chicken broth or vegetable broth or white wine instead of half or the majority of the clam juice. I used tiger prawns instead of salad shrimp and i'm glad i did. I also added scallops and maybe next time i'll add muscles or crab. Also i wouldn't mix the pasta and the sauce. It just ends up rather childish. Read More

This recipe is delicious....I plan to use it again. Instead of crushed tomatoes I used the can of peeled plum tomatoes cut up. Also plan to use more shrimp and scallops. Will also use medium shrimp instead of the small ones. Read More

FABULOUS! Didn't change a thing...we couldn't get enough! One thing: I used fresh lemon zest and that absolutely makes this dish sing. In emergencies I do use the dried stuff but really wanted to make this as written and am so glad I did. Thank you so much for sharing this with the rest of us! Read More

Wonderful balance of flavor super simple to put together. I used more garlic and crushed red pepper. We only use about 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest. I had a lot more seafood than called for and I am glad I did. Recipe is a little light for us. Fantastic meal we look forward to having again! update We make this every week now - we have added some chicken broth about 14 ozs and a cup of white wine. The addition of a few tablespoons chopped fresh parsley and fresh basil take this straight to the top of our favorite recipes list. We are now perfectly pleased with the recipe. Read More

Great recipe even without olives and lemon zest. I did have to add a can of tomato soup (wish I had more crushed or diced tomato's) since it didn't make enough sauce for the pasta. Read More
