Great recipe. Have probably made this 20 times since it came out in 1999. The supermarket was out of chopped & minced clams so I substituted a can of clam sauce & it came out wonderful so I've been doing that since--plus the can of chopped clams. Probably throws the calorie/fat content off the charts but it sure makes it taste spectacular!
