Anthony J Sepe: 

Pasta Shells with Clams and White Clam Sauce


8-10  scallions, sliced

2-4 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

4, 6.5 oz. cans chopped clams, drained ( reserve the liquid)

2, 14.5 oz. can stewed tomatoes (no salt added)

2-2.5 cups chicken broth

2 Tablespoons minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried

3-6 teaspoons dried oregano or 2 Tablespoons

1 box hot cooked shells

Grated Parmesan cheese to your liking



1.  Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray: heat.  Add the scallions, garlic and pepper flakes; cook, stirring as needed, until softened, 2-3 minutes.

2.  Add the clams, the reserved liquid, the tomatoes, chicken broth, basil and oregano; bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the liquid is reduced by one-third, 10-12 minutes.

3.  Place the shells in a large serving bowl; add the clam sauce and toss to coat.  Serve, sprinkled with the cheese.

Sharon Stuard Lemons:  Sugar free Banana Cream Pie! Everyone loves it and it takes a lot of kcalories out of the dessert at those family get-togethers!
