Ingredients

  • 3 lbs mussels
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cup Marinara Sauce Recipe
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Method

Scrub mussels; remove any beards. Discard any that do not close when tapped. Set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 hours.)

In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry minced onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in wine, sauce and half of the parsley; bring to boil. Add mussels; cover and cook until mussels open, about 8 minutes. Discard any that do not open. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.
