Clam sauce

Clam sauce served over spaghetti noodles

2 Tab. butter
2 Tab. cornstarch
2 cups milk
2 small cans of minced clams (these are the 6 oz or so cans) drained.
1 can of whole mushrooms (drained)
garlic powder
salt and pepper

Cook spaghetti noodles.

While spaghetti is cooking , cook the sauce in a separate pan. Melt the butter in the pan. Add the cornstarch making a thick paste(use fairly low heat). Microwave the milk for about 1 1/2 minutes. Slowly add a little milk at a time to the pan with the cornstarch paste--stirring constantly (medium heat). Continue adding the milk in small amounts. Add about 1/8 th to a 1/4 th tsp garlic powder. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook stirring constantly until thickened (about 5-6 minutes......sometimes this takes a bit longer). When sauce has thickened add the drained clams and mushrooms. Remove from heat and serve over noodles.
