“I used this recipe as a starting point for my own modified version. I used less butter and added half&half as well as some white wine & mixed in about 1/3 cup parmesan cheese. My 4-year old had 3 helpings!”
“This is a good recipe….lots of clams–yum!The only thing is that I think it is too oily with the 1/3 cup olive oil in addition to the butter.I did actually add some clam juice to the sauce.I will make this again, but next time I will omit the olive oil and replace it with clam juice and milk. “
