Expert Tips

You can use scallops or shrimp instead of mussels.

If you’re looking for a seafood dish that is inexpensive and easy to make, just pick up a few pounds of mussels. They’re delicious when combined with garlic, onions, and tomatoes in a wine sauce, either red or white. We often find ourselves believing that these dishes are too complicated to prepare, not realizing that in just a few minutes you and your family can be enjoying a delicious meal.

You can also use clam juice in place of wine.

Directions

  • 1 Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, sauté for 5 minutes or until tender, add sauce.
  • 3 Add the bell pepper and salt/pepper.
  • 4 Add the tomatoes and wine, let boil. Reduce heat to low and add the mussels, cover and cook for 7 minutes or until they open. Serve over the pasta, sprinkle with chives or fresh basil.
