       Yield: 4
 
            ¼ pound butter or margarine
     1/3 c  olive oil
            OR use 1/2 cup olive oil
            in place
            of butter and olive oil: no
            cholesterol)
            ½ teaspoon freshly ground
            pepper
       1 ts oregano, crumbled
       2 tb basil, crumbled
       3    garlic cloves
       1    ½ cups clams, fresh or
            canned (I
            like to use 2 cans of
            Chicken of
            the Sea baby clams)
       1 c  clam juice, fresh or
            bottled
            Salt to taste
       1 lb spaghetti, cooked
            ½ cup freshly grated
            low-fat
            Parmesan cheese
            (optional, but
            delicious)
       3 tb fresh parsley, minced
 
   Shred cheese (#1` knife) and set aside. Mince parsley and set
   aside.  Mince garlic.
   Melt the margarine and add the olive oil, pepper, oregano, basil,
   garlic, clams, and clam juice.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Add salt
   to taste.
   Warm a large bowl while you cook the spaghetti.  Rinse and drain
   the spaghetti, put in the bowl and add the clam sauce.  Toss with
   the  parsley and serve immediately. Sprinkle with shredded cheese
   to taste.
   Leftovers keep well (refrigerated) and heat up nicely in a
   microwave. Haven't tried freezing it - I usually enjoy eating it too
 much.
