"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Clams Posillipo
Clams Posillipo

32 littleneck clams
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped yellow onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
One 28-ounce can Italian whole plum tomatoes with juice
1 tablespoon tomato paste (optional)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Scrub the clamshells, rinse thoroughly in cold water, and place in a large pot.

Add cold water to cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
Cook until the shells open, about 5 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the clams to a large bowl. Discard any clams that have not opened.

Strain the cooking liquid through a chinois or a strainer lined with a coffee filter, and reserve 3/4 cup of this liquid as clam broth.
Return the clams to the pot, add cold water and stir to remove any remaining sand. Drain.

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium flame and saute the onions and garlic for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the onions are soft and translucent and the garlic is lightly golden.

Coarsely chop the tomatoes and add with their juice to the saucepan and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Stir in the tomato paste if you prefer and add the basil and parsley.
Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

Add the reserved clam broth and clams to the sauce and bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the clams are heated through.

Spoon the clams and sauce into a large serve bowl, garnish with parsley, and serve immediately. Serves 4.
