2 cups low-sodium tomato juice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
48 littleneck clams in shells, scrubbed (about 2 3/4 pounds)

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 4 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add juice and next 5 ingredients (through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until shells open. Remove clams from pan. Discard any unopened shells. Add parsley to pan; cook until liquid is reduced to 4 cups (about 15 minutes). Serve clams and sauce over pasta.
