Mussels in a Tomato Wine Sauce

Mussels in a tomato wine sauce make a simple appetizer or side dish anytime. I like to serve them with fresh bread before a meal or as a snack.

Ingredients:

2 pounds mussels (cleaned and debearded)
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 400 ml (about 14 oz.) can of chopped tomatoes or 3 large fresh chopped tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Saute the garlic in olive oil for about 1 minute

Add the wine, tomatoes, salt and pepper

Bring to a boil and then add the mussels

Reduce the heat and simmer covered for about five minutes (or until shells are open)

Throw away any shells that do not open


Serve the mussels with bread, rice, noodles, or even on their own!
