Fabulous! This was fast and easy and absolutely delicious! I wouldn't change a thing except maybe I will add some fresh mussels next time too!

I didn't follow the recipe exactly- mussels were on sale, so I got those and I didn't have a chance to stop for wine, so I used cooking sherry. It was really terrific! I was surprised at how much flavor this had and all the picky eaters at my table loved it. This will be a regular in my house! Thanks so much!

This turned out very well! I used a bit more garlic and a bit more wine and it was delicious. I will make this again.
