"This is a recipe I have been making for ages and it never disappoints. Serve this delicious sauce over your favorite cooked pasta with a nice hunk of garlic bread and your guests will keep coming back for more. Make sure you are using frozen clams and not the canned clams as they will turn out rubbery. Check for seasoning at the very end, most marinara sauces have enough salt added to them so you may not need to add it."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a skillet on the stove top over medium-high heat, add onion, peppers and garlic and cook until the onions and peppers start to char on the edges. The char gives a nice flavor to this sauce.

Step 2

Meanwhile, place frozen baby clams in a strainer run cold water over them until thawed; set aside.

Step 3

Pour the contents of the skillet into the crock of a slow cooker and add the marinara sauce, pureed sun-dried tomatoes, basil, ground pepper and thawed clams. Stir well and cover.

Step 4

Cook on medium heat for 6 hours.

Step 5

Stir in the whipping cream and taste to see if any salt is needed.
