An easy weeknight recipe and an interesting variation on plain tomato sauce. Clam juice adds a nice salty bite without tasting 'fishy,' and lime juice lends brightness.

This was pretty good. I would add more of the pickled jalapenos next time. Also, I put in the lime juice with the other liquid, instead of waiting til the end.

Very tasty and very easy to make. A little spicy for my taste, but good. Next time, I will probably use fresh, roasted jalopenos instead to turn the heat down.
