Mussels With Saffron Cream

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by chia2160

adapted from gourmet 12/06, i made this tonite and loved it. very quick and easy, this makes an appy for 6-8 or a main course for me ( just kidding, sort of). serve this with lots of french bread, and with spoons for the sauce.

Have made this several times and fall in love with it again each time. I am planning on it for dinner tomorrow at the request of the Wife.
