There are a few tips to the recipe. To begin with, I use canned clams because they are handy, but you can use fresh clams if you have access to them. The vegetables are a matter of preference, so feel free to use the veggies or your choice. I garnish the dish with bacon bits, but real bacon can be use too. The green onions add a pop of freshness and flavor, but if you are not a fan, they can be left out.
