Very quick & easy -- and inexpensive this time of year when littlenecks are $3/dozen. Served over fresh linguine and it was pretty tasty. First course white bean soup with gremolata, from the same CL issue. Nice summer meal.

I am surprised by the 3 star rating! This was excellent and I make it for guests over and over again with rave reviews. Plus, it is fairly simple to make. I added fresh clam meat in addition to the whole clams as I made this as an entree and served over linguini. Adjust the red pepper to people's tastes. I did add a little more salt and used more red peppers than the recipe states. Delicious.

Good but a bit bland. We enjoyed it but we won't be making it again.

This was very easy to make and delicions. However, the clams took a lot more than 4 minutes to cook. My husband & I gobbled this up, and I would definitely make this for company. I served it over whole wheat penne with a little bit of grated Parmesan. Yum!
