I have made this recipe countless times. Over years I have added a couple of things. I have added about 1/2 cup of Parmesan Chesse and 1/2 cup of heavy cream when reducing the sauce. Also a pinch of salt and pepper. Read More

Really tasty! I made a couple changes: substituted 1/4 cup of white wine and about a half tablespoon of butter instead of the full quarter cup, I used a little extra garlic, and used a ten ounce can of clams. This was really delicious with a baguette- a kicky upgrade to my usual white clam sauce. I'll be making this one again and again. Read More

I made this today and really enjoyed it. I tend to intensify flavors and this is how I tweaked this: to one lb. linguine I added 4 cans of clams 3/4 lb. baby shrimp 1 15 oz. can no sodium diced tomatoes (all I had I would recommend two or three cans) 12 cloves of minced garlic 1/4 cup minced onion 15 oz. can sodium reduced chicken stock 2 cups minced parsley 3/4 cup olive oil NO BUTTER (too much unhealthy fat and sodium-not needed) 2 Tbs. white pepper 2 tsp. basil and 1 1/2 cups of parmesan/romano cheese. Decadent VERY authentic tasting...gourmet...delish! Read More

This was great! Very easy except fpr the peeling and deseeding the tomatoes (but you'll be glad you did). I substituted the 1/4 cup of butter for a 1/4 cup of white wine and I put just a teaspoon full os margarine instead and it was awesome. Read More

This was absolutely delicious and flavorful. I was feeling lazy so instead of fresh tomatoes I just used a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and onions. Came out just fine. I still used additional fresh garlic and more than was called for since I love garlic. I'll be making again. Read More
