Instructions
  1. Cook bacon in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat until golden. Reduce heat to low. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in potato, clam juice, and tomatoes; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add clams; cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until clams open.
  2. Discard any clams not open after 10 minutes. Move pan off heat. Remove clams with tongs reserving a few clams in the shell for garnish. Detach clam meat from remaining shells and return meat to chowder.
  3. Stir in parsley, salt and pepper to taste. Note: The chowder (without the clams and parsley) can be made 1 day ahead. Bring chowder to a simmer then add clams and proceed as directed.
