Taught myself to make this while living in Italy. It's great because it has so much less oil than store bought sauces, it's less expensive and if you prefer red clam sauce you can just add some of your favorite tomato sauce to adjust it. Everyone loves this recipe and it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare!
