Pasta with White Clam Sauce
Garlic and oregano enhance the seafood flavor of this delicious main dish. "An Italian friend of my mom's passed on the recipe to her, and I began preparing it when I was 14," writes Kelli Soike of Tallahassee, Florida. "For convenience, it can be made in advance...and leftovers are just as good."
