"Had some mussels and this is what I came up with. Serving size is based on it being a main or a starter but suggest you serve it with crusty bread and a side salad. Prep time is the time it takes to scrub and debeard mussels and chop other ingredients."

Step 1

Heat a large saucepan, with a tight fitting lid over a medium heat and saute the onion, garlic and chilli for a few minutes until tender but not coloured and then add the jar of pasta sauce and bring to a boil and then lower temperature before adding the mussels and fit the pan with a lid and shake the pan to get the mussels well covered in the sauce.

Step 2

I like to remove the mussels as the open so the meat does not get tough, and put the opened mussels into a serving bowl.

Step 3

Discard any mussels which do not open and pour sauce over the mussels in the serving bowl and serve with some crusty bread and a side salad if you so wish.
