This was so so good! The mussles I bought couldn`t get fresher if I dug them myself! It came in 5 pound bags so we made a meal out of them. I sauteed the garlic in the oil then added all the ingredients using only 1 1/2 cups of hot water not 4 cups. I served with sliced, oven toasted Italian bread to absorb all the wonderful juices which I did not cook down. I made my own dip from store bought mayonnaise. Ellie, this was GREAT!
