I have yet to make this dish but I will switch out the mint for garlic. It is after all meant to be a savory dish is it not? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was raised in New York and got to Little Italy every chance I got. My absolutely favorite dish to eat there was Clams Oreganata. It was a contest to see which restaurant served the best. I don't have to wonder anymore. Giana's Clams Oreganata win the prize! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not the best I've had, I didn't use the mint, not really a fan, next time I won't use so much bread crumbs, I had a lot left over, and too much on the clams. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Nobody liked the mint in this dish and so it was a waste of time to make it. Next time I'll try it without. Maybe it is an acquired taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
