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.
