The Red Clam Sauce was posted by Aline on 8/10/05 in the Internaltional forum. It was posted as a white clam sauce with a note that you could use red wine. I have made this twice and it is a winner. Thank you Aline. Recipe is posted below.

White Clam Sauce

3 (8 oz) cans minced clams
1/4 cup olive or salad oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tbsp white wine (optional)
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp salt

Drain juice from clams, reserving juice. In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, in hot oil, cook garlic until tender. Stir in reserved clam juice and remaining ingredients except clams; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in drained clams; cook sauce just until clams are heated through. Begin 20 minutes ahead. Makes 3 cups.

** This sauce goes great with linguine! You can use red wine instead of white wine.

Your welcome Marieann. Glad you enjoyed it. The recipe came from The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook that I got at a yard sale.
