INGREDIENTS: YIELDS 4 servings
One 10 0z can whole baby clams
Two 6 ¾ oz minced or chopped clams
3 TBSP butter
3 TBSP olive oil

In a 4 qt sauce pan, melt butter and olive oil together. Add onion, garlic, mushrooms, and anchovy paste. Sauté 5 minutes on low heat. Add flour and cook another 3 – 4 minutes. Add Chardonnay and seasonings. Let simmer for a few minutes.
Drain clams, reserving liquid. You should end up with 1 ½ cups. Add to pan, stirring until slightly thickened. Slowly begin adding cheeses, stirring as you go. When cheese is melted and sauce is smooth, add half and half and clams. Cook only long enough to heat them.
Serve over cooked pasta and sprinkle with more grated cheese.
