Clams Casino Pasta

I know not every recipe can be a winner, but Cook's Country rarely lets me down. But I have to say, this was just plain bad:

It looks good, doesn't it? Vibrant colors, lots of good bits like bacon and fresh breadcrumbs, but it was just not good. I want to like canned clams because of their convenience factor, but I think it's time to admit that I just don't like the flavor.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I ate a few bites of this, pushed the plate away and had a peanut butter, banana and Nutella muffin instead. SP was also excited for this meal but he told me he tried the leftovers I gave him for lunch and wasn't a fan. Oh well. You win some and you lose some. I just hate when I lose.
Pin It!


  1. I hate it when you're so excited to try something new and you spend all this time putting it together and it turns out crappy! Sorry to hear it wasn't a winner.

  2. Tara - HI! It's been awhile since I've seen you around. :)

    Yeah...I was really disappointed. I hate wasting food but this just wasn't good.

  3. I like clans...but from a can? That's always been kind of scary...kind of like the bottled clam juice...or Clamato...scary.

    Go for little necks next time they're about 30 cents each or something down here, so they should be fairly reasonable where you are. And they're simple to cook to :)

    Buy yourself a couple dozen and give it another go. Also, I might leave out the bread crumbs entirely, or maybe toast some panko with Parmesan and sprinkle that on top.
