This is one of my all-time favorite meals. What makes the clam sauce so flavorful is the chicken bouillon, Worcestershire sauce, and baby portobello mushrooms. I recommend having this with some garlic bread and a nice glass of red wine. A very satisfying meal.

The ingredients were amazing I love baby bella mushrooms. Like one of the previous reviewers I also added Broccoli which only made the dish better. My only complaint was the dish was too salty. I would omit one or two of the bullions if I were to make this again. With the garlic and the Worcestershire there is plenty of flavor! Read More

Really delicious my 12 yr old son loved it...I doubled the garlic since i love garlic. I also used only 3 tsp of the reduced sodium better than boulion chicken base instead of boullion cubes I doubled the parsely rduced the butter to 3/4 of a stick added 1/4 cup of dry white wine with butter & clams at the end which I reduced the cooking time by 15 mins (7 1/2 mins off the beginning and end) and some crushed red pepper to taste. Awesome!!! Read More

Excellent with just a few changes. I doubled the garlic as well as added a whole dices small onion. In addition to the juice that came with the clams I added a bottle of clam juice. I also used whole wheat spaghetti. This is the second time I've done this to rave reviews by my family Read More

Just made this dish tonight! My husband was looking for a dish similar to Olive Garden's Seafood Portifino......I did what others suggested only used 3 bouillon cubes. I also added a small onion and scallops (last step). It was delicious! Thanks Read More

This is excellent. I left out the bullion cubes because I didn't want the sodium and it was still absolutely wonderful. Read More

I added broccoli florets toward the end and it was just what the dish needed. Next time I may cut down on the butter a little but it was overall a very good recipe. Read More

I LOVE this recipe. Better than what I've had in restaurants. Followed advise of another & reduced bouillon to 2 (cuz I'm not crazy about salty stuff). Next time might add a clove or 2 more garlic. This is a great recipe. Wonderful the next day. Thanks a bunch! Read More

Very good- I decreased butter by 1/2 and did 2 bullion cubes instead of 4. I will also only do 3 cans of clams next time as it was still a little on the salty side. Also added a chopped onion when sauteing the mushrooms 2 more cloves of garlic some white wine at the end when I added the butter and about 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. Read More
