I had company for supper and everyone liked it. Only change I'd make is to add more clams and more garlic.

This was very bland to me and to everyone who tried it..I made some light alfredo sauce and stirred it in, and then it tasted wonderful:)

Loved this recipe! I used 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 light butter, TONS of garlic, and a splash of white wine. I tossed in some grape tomatoes and heated until they split. This recipe is a keeper!
