Directions:
STEAM clams with wine and garlic in covered, medium saucepan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until clams open. Drain clams, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

HEAT sauce, reserved cooking liquid and saffron in small saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes. Stir until blended and saffron imparts a yellow color to sauce.

PREPARE pasta according to package directions.

TOP pasta with sauce and clams. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

*Saffron strands can be found in the spice section of major grocery and specialty stores.

Tip: If fresh clams are hard to find, substitute 1 can (6.5 ounces) chopped clams, drained. Simmer Alfredo sauce, 1/2 cup wine, clams, 1 teaspoon chopped garlic and saffron strands for 10 minutes, then follow the instructions above.
