Step 1

Cook the bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Once crispy, remove from pan and place on a paper towel to drain the fat. Once cooled, crumble the bacon. Remove all but 2 tsp of bacon grease from the Dutch oven. Add the onion, celery and carrots to the Dutch oven and sauté for 6-7 minutes or until soft and tender. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 60 seconds.

Pour the two cans of diced tomatoes in a large bowl and blend thoroughly with an immersion blender (or use a regular blender). Add the tomatoes and chicken broth to the Dutch oven. Add the seasonings and remainder of ingredients (except for the clams and parsley) to the pot. Simmer on medium low for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Once you are ready to serve, add the clams and their juices to the pot along with the fresh parsley and bacon crumbles, let simmer for 3-5 minutes then serve. Enjoy.
