Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Romano cheese, made from sheep’s milk, has a sharper flavor than Parmesan, which is made from cow’s milk. Both are terrific toppers for this dish, but Romano will give you a bit more flavor.
*
3 cans (10 oz each) whole clams, drained, can be substituted for the fresh clams.
