Anybody have a good Spaghetti alle Vongole recipe?

I'm making a pantry supper tonight, and I swear I've seen a dozen "good" pantry recipes for Spaghetti alle Vongole. I knew I had some canned clams and the rest, so I thought it would be a perfect simple supper.

I looked at 20 cookbooks. I looked on the web. Nothing I found was terribly satisfying; I'm concocting my own recipe now and it's simmering on the stove.

Well, mine was fine, but not that interesting. Per some other recipes I found, I sauteed a couple of anchovies in olive oil, then added chopped onion and garlic and sauteed until soft. Then I added canned diced tomatoes, basil and oregano, a hint of red pepper flakes, and simmered more. Finally, I added the canned clams and heated them to serve. It was fine, but a little bland. Oh, and I added a splash of white wine, too. But what could I do to make it tastier?
