Mussels Magnifico


1 pound Mussels

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic

2 tablespoons tomato paste

3 fresh chopped tomatoes

1 large minced onion

3 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 cup dry white wine

Heat oil in a large kettle. Add onion and saute until golden. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients, except the mussels. Bring to a simmer. Stir well and adjust seasoning if necessary. Add boiled mussels and simmer gently for 3 minutes. Transfer mussels to serving bowls and ladle the sauce over each serving. Salt and pepper to taste. I served with Jasmine rice.

This week I will be joining:

I love mussels and eat them at restaurants, but have never prepared them myself. I always thought they were complicated to make- this doesn't look too hard! I may have to try these because they sound delicious. :)

I wish my husband enjoyed mussels as much as I do! This recipe sounds delicious. Maybe I'll make him a grilled cheese and make these for myself ;)

I have never made mussels before, but they are one of my 4 year old nephew's favourite foods, so perhaps I will have to give them a shot!

Yum! You can't beat a good pan of mussels! I love them with mushrooms, bacon and cream.:)
