Reduce about 20-25%. add clams reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Outstanding, I merged Bier's and one Momma PD ran over as they were similar(recipe). The good thing was ( and I know we've all been there before) it absolutlely hit the spot. #1 it's what I was craving and #2 I wanted to whip it together myself.......needless to say, it will be done again.

 

I despise anchovies, so I omitted them, as when I taste a dish with anchovies.....it's all I taste.....NASTY(one man's opinion)

awesome!

 

i am not a fan of anchovies either, but there are a few recipes that they can work for me.

 

key to this one is reducing that sauce or it can get "soupy."

 

great with garlic bread.

Can we get a poll going on white vs. red clam sauce? I find in red clam sauce, the clams get overpowered by the tomato flavor. White is all about the clam juice being the base of the flavor.

 

PS - and anchovie pizza (although an aquired taste, I'll admit) r00ls!

I like both, but was in the mood for red....sometimes it's white.
