I cut the out of a magazine and had it saved where no one could see it.

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan.
  2. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until just softened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add wine and bring to a boil.
  5. Add the mussels and about a cup of water.
  6. Cover and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mussels open, 8-10 minutes.
  7. Discard any mussels that don't open.
  8. Spoon the mussels and broth into bowls and serve.
