I first got this recipe a couple of years ago from my son's school cookbook project. It's been a cheap and filling meal that always makes splash with friends and family.

I was about to input a similar recipe but I will just add that my recipe has 1/2 tsp. salt that goes in with the garlic and my recipe calls for 4 lbs. mussels and serves 4-6. I can eat a lot of these! Enjoy!
