13 oz. minced clams
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
2 tbls butter
1/4 cup flour

Recipe Directions for Spaghetti with Creamy Clam Sauce

  1. In a large saucepan or pasta pot bring 3 quarts water to boiling. Add pasta. Reduce heat slightly. Boil, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes for dried pasta or 1 1/2-2 minutes for fresh, or till al dente, stirring occasionally. (Or cook according to package directions.) Immediately drain.

  2. Meanwhile, drain clams, reserving liquid. Add enough half-and-half, light cream, or milk to the reserved liquid to make 1 3/4 cups.

  3. For sauce, in a medium saucepan cook the onion and garlic in hot margarine or butter about 5 minutes, or until onion is tender but not brown. Stir in the flour, basil or oregano, salt and pepper. Add the cream mixture all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in the parsley, wine, and clams. Heat through. Serve sauce over hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
