Mealthy Tip

Reduce the amount of red pepper flakes if you don't like it as spicy. This seafood recipe can be served as a starter for four people, or as a main course for two. For a richer broth, add 1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half to the simmering broth with the mussels. Here's another great mussels recipe we love.

So far there hasn't been a mussels dish that I did not like. This one is really good and grilled bread with this dish is a must. For an extra layer of richness to go with the bread, I recommend adding a little bit of herbed butter.

I loved the spicy tomato sauce with these mussels. It wasn't too spicy, just the right amount of heat. They smell amazing as they are cooking, and the mussels soak up all the delicious flavor. These are great by themselves or with a bed of pasta.

Much easier to make than I anticipated. I did have 1 or 2 mussels that didn’t make it, but other than that this was a total success.
