Seafood on Christmas Eve is a tradition for the holiday family. This can be served as an appetizer with bread for dipping or over pasta as a main course or even over zoodles to keep it low in carbohydrates. I usually use my own homemade marinara sauce (I never use jarred sauce) when making this, but I tried this with Delallos Pomodoro Fresco and I have to say I was very impressed and it was my husband! It tastes like my homemade sauce and this dish came together in less than 15 minutes.

If you have never made clams before, you will be surprised at how easy this dish is. The mussels should be alive when you buy and cook them. Any clams that are cracked must be discarded and any clams that will not open after cooking should also be discarded.
