Sauté lightly: onion, bacon, anchovies & garlic in skillet on med-high. Remove from heat.

Melt butter in large saucepan over med-high heat. Add flour sitting constantly 2-3 minutes. Slowly stir in stock and bring to a boil. Add onion/bacon mixture, spinach and clams and bring to a boil once again, stirring occasionally. Pour in cream and bring to a boil again. Add s&p to taste. Divide among bowls and add a dash of Pernod to each.
