Mussels with tomato sauce

Mussels with tomato sauce

Now that I made clear that I cannot be without seafood I’d like to show you all (who are you? is anybody reading my blog AT ALL?) another rather quick dish that can be served as a starter or even as a main dish, depending on how many mussels you serve. One of the best things about it it’s that you can eat the sauce with baguette and it’s looooovely ;-). But enough said. On to the serious matters. Öhm, the recipe, I mean.


  • fresh mussels
  • canned tomatoes (pelati)
  • white wine
  • garlic
  • flat leave parsley
  • olive oil
  • salt&pepper


  1. wash and debarb the mussels under fresh running water;
  2. tap on the open mussels, if they close you can keep them, if not discard them;
  3. heat a pan with a little bit of oil, add a clove or two of garlic leaving them whole (so you can take them out later, if you don’t like the idea of biting on it while eating the mussels);
  4. add the mussels and let them open;
  5. add the white wine and the chopped canned tomatoes;
  6. leave it to reduce a little bit;
  7. season to taste and add the chopped flat leave parsley;
  8. serve in a large bowl with some baguette.
