    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This is one of our favorites! You may want to add some red pepper flakes to the sauce if you like things spicy. Originally from a May 1979 issue of Bon Apetit.

      I am a beginner cook and made this recently to prove to my boyfriend I can manage in the kitchen...I skipped the mussels and added a few vegetables instead. I also used an olive oil that had a little red pepper in it already, it added just a bit of a kick. It was delicious! We were both very impressed with my cooking skills. :)
