Now this also works with clams as well, but my favorite is mussels. This is so easy and quick to make. It is a wonderful starter dish or even a main course. Just make sure to have some crusty bread to go with it. My favorite is slice your baguette in half and drizzle with olive oil and toast. Rub it with fresh garlic and a slice of tomato for a wonderful fresh flavor. Just a Note: I didn't count the olive oil to saute the vegetables in or the salt and pepper in the six ingredients. It is still very very easy and absolutely delicious. These amounts work good for 1-1 1/2 lbs. Just double each of the ingredients if you are using more mussels.
