Amazing White Clam Sauce Recipe
I got this recipe from an old boyfriend, and have modified it over the years. My husband and I have this at least every two weeks with a big loaf of garlic bread. It's very easy, but very delicious and filling.
White clam sauce is even easier when you use store-bought Alfredo sauce. Extra garlic and onion gives it a great homemade taste.
This clam sauce is very creamy and there is no butter in it. I get requests for this all the time.
I cannot order better white clam sauce in a restaurant. My boyfriend begs me to make this! Thanks Mom! Serve this dish with fresh garlic bread and a nice white wine. I promise this is a keeper and you won't like any other white clam sauce!
I really enjoyed this quick, tasty meal. I used the Classico Alfredo sauce and it was perfect. I only used a dash of the red pepper flakes and added some parsley for some color. I did have to make about 12-14 ounces of pasta to use up all the sauce, 8 oz was not enough in my opinion. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, using 3 cans of Snows Chopped Clams, using all the juice from the cans to reduce with the wine. Really good recipe, dare I say restaurant quality? Thanks grainie for the recipe.
BEST clam sauce I've ever made. I did make a few small adjustments which kicked it up a notch- BACON!!! And mushrooms. Instead of using butter and olive oil, I just fried up about 5 slices of bacon (chopped into pieces before frying). Then added the onions to the bacon grease and bacon pieces, then added fresh mushrooms roughly chopped, then garlic, etc.. Also, I squeezed 1/2 a lemon to the clam juice and wine reduction. The Alfredo sauce is genius and the red pepper flakes add the perfect amount of spice. Phenomenal!!
This was SO good!! Added more clams and added mussels. Yummy! Next time I might add some veggies but was so good without and served with salad and bread.
Super easy. Especially after working all day. Really yummy.
