Loved everything about this dish. I added more garlic than listed, added a sliced red bell pepper because I needed to use it up, and added additional tomato sauce (passata) because I wanted to use up the full can measure. Served it alongside some rice that helped sop up the juices. Made for a wonderful Sunday meal that was realy special. Thank you Pat for sharing. Made it for PickMe Tag.

We love Mussels and often have them as our Sunday appetizer. I have 3 recipes that I rotate through but never more! Pat this recipe is the best yet! I cut the recipe in half, used 5 garlic cloves, Marsala wine & dried herbs. I wish you could see our smiles from the enjoyment these mussels gave us MMmmmm.
