    In a large pot combine potatoes, sausages, onions, corn and bay leaves. Cover with about 3 quarts cold water and season to taste with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add clams, cover and cook until they open, about 15 minutes. You can serve this right from the pot at table.
