    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?
    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!
    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.
    VERY EASY AND EXCELLENT FIRST COURSE DISH
    i made this for my parents for there anniversary dinner and they loved it as much as I did.
    Delicious...I was my first time making clams. I made it for my dad, who if fond of clams..and he loved it! A keeper..and a great dish to impress at a party...thanks Giada
    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.
