  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 100ml dry white wine

  • ½ cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

  • 200ml tomato sugo (see my simple recipe)


  • 1.

    In a heavy-based saucepan heat oil and add mussels, garlic and chilli. Stir for 2 minutes, or until mussels begin to open, then add wine, tomato and parsley, seal pan with an airtight lid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until mussels open fully. Discard any closed mussels.

    When mussels have opened, serve with fresh bread or well-buttered toast.
