For a light meal or lovely starter, simply add mussels to simmer (until opened) in this beautiful tomato sauce with butter, olive oil, garlic, shallots, capers, Italian seasoning and crushed chilli flakes, garnished with spring onions. Serve with fresh rocket salad and crusty bread for wiping up every last bit of sauce!
Delicious! My husband and I made this and served it over linguine. The sauce is just awesome-capers add a touch of salt and the red pepper gives it a nice kick. I added some white wine before I put the mussels in the pot. This is a new favorite! Thanks. - 12 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent dish! I especially enjoyed dipping some toasted bread in the sauce. I didn't have capers so I substituted chopped dill pickles and it worked out great. - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were great and absolutely delicious. I found when I made them there was not a lot of sauce, not sure if it was me or the recipe. Next time I may try to make extra sauce. - 09 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
