1/4 cup fresh Parmesan, shredded
1/4 cup butter
1 cup cream
1 lb. angel hair pasta, cooked tender
3 cans chopped clams and juice
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 1/2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons olive oil
dash of salt and pepper
1. Heat butter and olive oil in skillet. 
2. Saute onions and garlic until tender. 
3. Add parsley and clams with juice. 
4. Salt and pepper to taste. 
5. Add basil, thyme, cream, flour, and Parmesan cheese. 
6. Simmer 15 minutes. Do not allow to boil.

This sauce is lightly creamy and savory. I adore the clam sauce at The Spaghetti Factory. Fortunately, this recipe tastes very similar.
