Directions

  1. In a large, heavy bottom, sauce pan, sauté bacon until cooked but not crisp. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper and carrot. Cook covered on medium-low until soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir garlic into the vegetables, then deglaze with the white wine. Cook until liquid is gone.
  3. Add the chicken broth, the reserved clam juice and the remaining ingredients, except the pasta. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 30 minutes.
  4. Add the pasta and the clams and cook until the pasta is al dente, stirring frequently to keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
