    My second round on the delightful Jims White Clam Sauce/saved. Today I used reconstituted dried shitake mushrooms along with some chopped fresh basil. The basil I added in the first step to saute with the garlic, thyme and oregano. The green in the photo is the fresh parsley which is added in the last step. I served it over white basmati rice instead of pasta which was wonderful.

    My first run at white clam sauce and it was a total success. I'm very pleased to have a dish ready for my lunch tomorrow as well. I was attracted to Jim's version because of the happy use of mushrooms. I picked baby portabello mushrooms and liked the contrast they gave. Picture posted. Today I served it over white basmati rice instead of fettucini. That works too

    Thanks so much Jim. This really did satisfy my longing.

    I dashed out at lunch and picked up the stuff to make this. I also posted over on Livestrong.com so I could figure out how many calories (yup on a perpetual diet). I'll let you know how it turns out :)
