    KittyKitty's Note:

    Mussels look really nice, when on display over rice or pasta. This is one of my husbands favorites, the aroma it makes while cooking is wonderful. A great dish to impress guests. It's very easy to make.

      It's a shame this never got any reviews before this. This dish looked promising when I read the recipe, and it turned out to be every bit as delicious as it sounded: the flavors were wonderful! If that wasn't enough, it made for a really nice presentation, too! It was a big hit with the family.
