DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a frying pan, add the veggies and cook at medium for about 5 minutes. Don't let them take too much color.
  • Add wine, bay leaf, thyme, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes, and tomatoes paste; bring to a boil and let cook another 5 minutes.
  • (All this could be prepared ahead of time and brought back to a boil at meal time).
  • Clean the mussels.
  • Those you find open knock it against another.
  • If it does not close by itself discard it--it's dead.
  • Same with those that didn't open after cooking.
  • Now add the mussels to the boiling sauce; cover and cook 4 minutes.
  • Serve 12 mussels per person.
  • Pour sauce over it. Sprinkle parsley. (Serve with good French or Italian bread). Better if you warm your plates ahead of time in oven 180°F.
  • Don't forget an empty dish at the center of table for the discarded shells.
