    *Pixie*'s Note:

    mmmmm mussels, I prefer cultivated mussels because they don't have all the sand and gritty stuff that the regular ones do (cleaning is a breeze). Serves 4 as an appetizer or two for lunch...

    3. 3
      Add the onion, celery, and tomato and cook until the onions and celery are tender.

    7. 7
      Spoon the mussels and sauce into four bowls and sprinkle with parsley.

      I made this recipe without the celery and added in thinly sliced serrano peppers while the tomato and onions cooked. Then I threw on some fresh sliced peppers at the end. This was a hit. A very nice, deep, complex flavor with some kick. I like this recipe because of the tomato...I think it's what's missing in most of the other mussel recipes.

      Very good and easy - served over linguini and it was very satisfying.
