"Might be an oldie for you Chia, for me this was new! The combination of the ingredients that made the sauce were great. Thanks for posting this because we eat mussels quite often and I will make this recipe again! BTW..at time of writing this review it says in the ingredients, a 28 oz can of whole tomato puree, I took that for tomatoes and you might want to have that corrected, its probably a computer mistake?"
"Yummy. I love the sauce. Perfectly seasoned..I followed the recipe exactly."
"I made this yesterday for my BF and father and they told me it was very good.Thanks for the recipe Chia!!"
"Excellent! My picky stepson loved it, and DH, who hates mussels, at least loved the sauce. Really easy with a food processor to mince the garlic and chop the olives. Quick, too."
"Very nice !!!!! The only thing I would change in the basic recipe is the amount of olive oil. A great recipe that can be adaptable for most seafood as well as chicken."
"This is excellent!I haven't had Fra Diavlo in so long. I followed exactly (but cut the recipe in half) and added a dozen shrimp. I will definitely make this again!"
"Did cut this recipe in half since it was made for just 2 adult neighbors who enjoy what I call the unusual seafoods! I've never made a mussel dish, so felt compelled to follow ingredients & directions rather closely! Although I didn't eat this dish, my friends enjoyed it greatly & wanted a copy of the recipe for their kids, so . . . Since I can't give you 5 thumbs up, I'll just settle for 5 stars! Great recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Italy on Zaar's World Tour 4]"
"I was scared because I never do well with seafood, but this was spectacular! I will make it again...no one else but me likes mussels so I get leftovers!"
"This was DELICIOUS! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. If you are going to make this for two, I would suggest roughly halfing the recipe... It made for a lovely dinner "Ã deux"..."
"I didn't realize how great this recipe was until I tried different ones and kept wanting to come back to this! The capers and olive give the liquid an amazing taste, and add that to the garlic and you got a winner. Some of my family found it spicy, but it was perfect for my taste. You just gotta give it a try!"
"What a diabolic good recipe. I love mussels and the combination of spices here made them a winner. I followed the recipe, but use less canned tomatoes and added two fresh diced tomatoes. The olives and capers are a wonderful addition of flavors. Instead of pepper flakes I've used whole dried peppers. So I could easily adapt the pepperiness by adding abother pepper and I like it very hot. This is a keeper. Thank you for sharing."
