GUY'S MUSSELS MARINARA


My Sicilian hubby loves mussels marinara.  So when Harris Teeter had 3-lb. bags of wild mussels recently, I bought a bag for him.  He made the mussels himself and enjoyed them immensely.  I'm passing on his easy recipe to all mussels lovers.

INGREDIENTS:  1 (3-lb.) bag of wild mussels
1 jar of Bertolli marinara sauce (or other marinara sauce of choosing)
2 baguettes, toasted

Rinse mussels well in cold water, scrubbing them with a stiff brush and removing any beards.  Discard broken shells.  Place mussels in a large pot and pour the marinara sauce over them.  Cover and heat on medium-high heat till sauce is bubbling and mussels open up.  Discard any mussels that stay closed.  Serve immediately with toasted baguettes.  Yield:  2 dinner-size servings, or 6 appetizer servings
