  1. I enjoyed this recipe as a great starting point. My premise was that seafood tastes better with acid so I added half a lemon to the reduction. I also added some chili flakes green onions white wine chicken stock and a little fresh oregano. I also reduced the sauce for at least 20 minutes since - Read more ...
  2. Nice recipe. I don't like it when people make big changes but I did make a few (trying to use up ingredients from another recipe). I reduced the olive oil to just a few tablespoons and used it to saute the garlic with a little added minced onion. I also added 1/2 cup each of - Read more ...
  3. I have been making this for years with the exception of adding butter. I use two cans of Whole clams (I love clams) minced clams just don't do it for me. I also add parsley oregano garlic salt and garlic powder. It is wonderful. Thanks Peg for sharing your recipe.....
  4. This is super yummy. I definitely didn't use as much oil or butter and added a little white wine. I also added some baby bella mushrooms. I will definitely be making this again really soon.

  8. My husband and I decided that this dish was good enough that it would not have been out of place if served at a solid Italian restaurant. I added a little white wine and lemon juice to the sauce (while it was simmering) to great effect. The lemon juice gave the sauce a little pizzazz. - Read more ...
  9. I can't say that we found this to be anything to brag about. I even added 1/4 cup red and 1/4 cup green chopped bell peppers and 1/4 cup of fresh, sliced mushrooms to the saute. Still, the result was nothing more than butter and noodles...with a couple of veggies and clams. I would certaintly - Read more ...
