    threeovens's Note:

    We eat a lot of mussels. You can't beat them since they are so versatile, yet simple, inexpensive and not fishy. Win! Win! Thus recipe is modified from Lidia Bastianich.

      Remove the shells and divide between serving bowls, discarding any shells did not open.
    6. 6
      At this point, if you are a restaurant chef, you would strain the broth into a large skillet; I do not both to do this so call my broth "rustic.".

      At any rate, increase the heat to a rolling boil and cook to slightly reduce the broth and thicken, about 4 minutes.
