Sauteed Mussels in White Wine Sauce

The mussels were a hit last month. For this month, our friend Christine created another recipe with an Italian twist.


20 cloves of garlic

3 pounds of mussels

A handful of chopped parsley

One stick of butter

1/2 a cup of dry white wine

1/2 a teaspoon of hot pepper flakes

Soak mussels in cold water. Sautee garlic in butter. Add wine to pan. Put mussels in pan, cover. Cook for 5-7.  Remove mussels. Reduce heat, simmer until sauce slightly thickens. Add hot pepper flakes and parsley. Pour sauce over mussels. Serve with Italian bread.
