"My husband and I are both Italian, so everything I make has to be authentic! This recipe is wonderful. I followed the ingredients as written, (except for using olive oil, of course!!) I know the amoun..." See moret of oil and butter may scare some, but it does make the dish. There are other recipes using only clam juice and wine as the base, but I find them not as decadent with lack of substance (much lower in fat and calories though:). I did sautee the garlic first(tons of garlic!), added crushed red pepper, and thickened it with some fresh parmesan at the end. I know some reviewers used cornstarch and flour, and that may have been good, but I was scared to do it! Anyway, thanks for the recipe!"

I used half the amount of olive oil that is recommended, simply because the amou..." See morent of total fat scared the pants off of me. I subbed half of the pasta cooking water for 1/4 cup of oil. I also used fresh basil, and about four cloves of garlic. Rave reviews from dinner party guests. They practically licked their plates. Enjoy!"
