I cannot express just how good, how easy, and how addaptable this recipe is! It's always a little different depending what i have on hand. I buy the frozen mussels at "big box store".I think its a 2lb bag, with two bags inside. Each interior bag feeds two. I decided to make it into a simple pasta dish. First,put on a pot of boiling water for the pasta. I used angel hair and seasoned mine with tomato bullion. Gives the pasta not only a great flavor, but a great color. Started with a half of a small diced onion, sauteed that in olive oil till transparent. Added all the garlic, sauteed just for a minute longer. Then dumped in an entire can of petite diced tomatos (just using what i had on hand and for quickness factor), juice and all. Also, i added the zest and juice from half a lemon. And seasoned with garlic salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes too taste. I didn't have green onions on hand last night, but they are great too. This is also a good time to chop a couple of mushrooms and throw those in too if you have them. Then once this starts to get bubbly i add the wine and the parsley. Let this simmer and reduce by half, uncovered. Once done i then put my pasta on to boil, as it only takes about six minutes. I dump the mussels in the sauce, and cover. It says about ten minutes. When the pasta is done, i drain it, then throw it in the pan with the sauce and mussels to let it absord a bit on the sauce. Then Serve! And you will be very pleased!!!
