Top Review by PetsRus

Might be an oldie for you Chia, for me this was new! The combination of the ingredients that made the sauce were great. Thanks for posting this because we eat mussels quite often and I will make this recipe again! time of writing this review it says in the ingredients, a 28 oz can of whole tomato puree, I took that for tomatoes and you might want to have that corrected, its probably a computer mistake?
