Alix, hope the recipe turned out well. Appreciate the "positive" input.

Oops! Forgot to post my results! OK, this was a big hit Saturday night even with daughter #1 until I told her there were clams in it. (She told me she would rather not know that as sometimes the thought of it makes her gag...LOL) So, the sauce didn't reduce as long as it likely should have, and I lost patience, so I thickened it just a tad with some cornstarch. The flavours were lovely though. Enough garlic, enough parmesan and enough clams. I served it with a lovely green salad and white wine (milk for the munchkin and the real thing for me!)

I think Ken enjoyed it too because he had the leftovers for lunch the next day.

After all the great suggestions & help here, it's moved up on my list. Wanted to thank everyone that contributed thoughts, etc. Now all I need are the clams (DUH).

I really thought about that too, Alix. I might even have some in the pantry. GRRRREAT in a hurry-idea! (I won't tell a soul.)

Oh Dear!! Canned clams

Um, how did the basil go? Reading this recipe and thread, I thought the basil would overpower the other delicate flavours.

This sounds great, Mish. You come up with some really tasty recipes and I've tried a lot of them. I would probably not use the basil, because of overpowering the dish with that flavor, but the rest of it sounds very good. Lots of good ideas thrown in.

Heck, I use canned clams all of the time and use fresh as a garnish.
