“My brother in law dropped by for dinner one night and I threw this together. He absolutely loved it and even had seconds. Since then I have made it a few more times and we still like it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet and add garlic and onions. Reserve a couple of tablespoons of the green part of the onion for garnish. Saute until nearly done. Drain Clams well into a measuring cup. You should get 1/4 to 1/2 cup of juice. Add clam juice, chicken broth and wine to the skillet. Add italian seasonings and bring to a rolling boil. Boil until sauce has reduced somewhat approximately 5 minutes, reduce heat to simmer. Continue to cook while pasta is cooking. If sauce is not to desired thickness you can add some parmesan cheese to help thicken the sauce or a little cornstarch mixture. I like to add about1/4 cup parmesan to the sauce. Sauce should be somewhat thin. When pasta has approximately 4 minutes until it is completely finished, add in the clams and the shrimp. Cook only until shrimp turns pink. Cover and set aside.
  2. PASTA:
  3. Prepare pasta according to directions. When finished rinsed lightly. You will want the pasta to retain some heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter which has been broken into smaller pieces, 2 tablespoons Italian seasonings and 1 cup of parmesan cheese. Blend well and cover.
  4. SERVE:.
  5. Divide pasta onto 4 dinner plates and top with sauce mixture, topping with parmesan cheese and a bit of reserved green onions.
  6. NOTES: If you like a lot of sauce with your pasta you can increase the sauce mixture to desired amount.
