This was a lunch for a friend and I. It was quite easy and we both enjoyed making and eating it together. We did thicken the broth just a bit with a ball of flour and butter thrown in while cooking. Delicous to put it mildly!

The ease of making this yummy dish came in handy after a busy day. I served a Caesar Salad with it and we were good to go. Saving for future use cause we loved it!

What a quick and tasty dish...I used Penne in place of the Ziti...but that's the only change with the exception of cutting the recipe in half for the two of us...served it with garlic bread and green salad...made for "Alphabet" tag game...

This is a very tasty pasta dish! If you like clams it is a must try. I made mine with fettuccine noodles instead of Ziti and we liked!
