This is a great basic recipe for mussels. I too like to add more garlic, and spices to kick up the flavor, but to say that a Jarred sauce of any kind would be better than homemade is just ludacris. Thanks for posting, I am making it again tonight!

Super easy and a wonderful dish. I did add a few seasonings to spice it up a bit. I used a cup of chardonnay instead of a red. Just love sopping up that broth with the crusty bread. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Disappointing. The mussels were mushy and flavorless, and the "sauce" lacked character. Would have been better with a jarred marinara sauce...

Great recipe and it couldn't be easier to make. Forget the linguine. Serve with bread and just enjoy. I agree that it works well with a white wine base. Thanks for a great recipe

I have done this twice now, each time with a riesling wine, and each time it has been phenomenal! Didn't use pasta because only I was eatting it, but if you are having more than one person, pasta would be a great idea :) Best to you all!
