I added a little salt and pepper on my plate, that's all. No parsley or meat added to the sauce.
I'll definitely make it again.
Believe it or not we had this again tonite! I love it.
My advice, add more butter next time! :D
I almost forgot, I also made some Pig Skin Rollups - Cotechinata with the sauce tonite! You might not be brave enough to eat this.

Any italian would have you killed for suggesting such a thing....You use olive oil for a marinara sauce...it's an unspoken rule. Just as you should never grate cheese over a seafood dish.
They use olive oil for everything even on bread .Giada's Clams Casino Recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese .They don't consider clams as seafood .
