How to Make Clam Sauce

Clam Sauce is one of the easiest and quickest sauces to make. Very little preparation and culinary skills are required.

In many recipes, fresh ingredients are often best, but fresh clams will not be needed for this one. Just find canned, chopped clams at your local grocery store, and they will do just fine. The buttery texture of the sauce together with the optional white wine will give you a great final flavor that the whole family will love.
