Rinse mussels and snip off any beards. Discard any that do not close when tapped. Set aside.

In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic and herbes de Provence, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil over high heat and boil until reduced by half, about 10 minutes.

Add mussels; stir well. Cover and steam over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mussels open, about 5 minutes. Discard any that do not open. Sprinkle with parsley.
