    This was terrific, but I made a few alterations. I used half the butter, double the garlic, added 1/4 cup white wine, added 1/2 chicken broth cube added some red pepper strips and added garlic salt  -  28 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this recipe countless times. Over years I have added a couple of things. I have added about 1/2 cup of Parmesan Chesse and 1/2 cup of heavy cream when reducing the sauce. Also a pinch of salt and pepper.  -  29 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really tasty! I made a couple changes: substituted 1/4 cup of white wine and about a half tablespoon of butter instead of the full quarter cup, I used a little extra garlic, and used a ten ounce can of clams. This was really delicious with a baguette- a kicky upgrade to my usual white clam sauce. I'll be making this one again and again.  -  09 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
