There is something so decadent about white, rich and creamy sauces over pasta! I recently asked Facebook fans to submit a favorite dish they would like to see as a 4 ingredient recipe, and someone requested Clam Sauce. Here is a recipe that has full flavor without the heavy cream, and taste great over your favorite noodles (some like using roasted "spaghetti" squash instead of pasta, or those 0 calorie/fat/carb Kelp noodles (available at most asian grocery stores). Give it a try and let us know what you think!
4 shallots, chopped
4 (6.5 ounce) cans clams, minced
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 tablespoons white wine
In large pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons butter and shallots, then sauté for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Drain the clams, reserving half of the juice. Add clams, reserved juice, wine and butter to pan and cook for 20 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by 1/3. Serve over your favorite cooked pasta (I like a gluten-free linguine) garnish with grated parmesan and chopped parsley, and enjoy!
