Reviews for Red Clam Sauce Over Pasta
"Excellent! I made this for a family dinner and there were no leftovers."
"I use this recipe at least once a month. My husband and children love it! Since we like the taste and chewiness of the clams, the only change I make is to add 2 cans of clams to the recipe. It's really delicious :)"
