  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Swirl olive oil into melted butter. Cook garlic, shallots, and capers in oil and butter until shallots are translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes; stir until well incorporated. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Add mussels to the pan and cover tightly. Raise heat to medium-high and cook until all mussels have opened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, garnish with chopped green onions to serve. Discard any unopened mussels.

Excellent dish! I especially enjoyed dipping some toasted bread in the sauce. I didn't have capers so I substituted chopped dill pickles and it worked out great.

These were great and absolutely delicious. I found when I made them there was not a lot of sauce, not sure if it was me or the recipe. Next time I may try to make extra sauce.

Great recipe. Added 1/4 cup white wine to sautéed onions and garlic. Used 2 lbs of mussels - plenty of sauce! Served as main course for 2 people with garlic bread.

I made this and then shelled the mussels and put them and the sauce over linguini. Yummy! Definitely a go to recipe.

These were awesome!

These were fantastic!! The sauce is very flavorful and great for dipping our new favorite Yum!!

I used 1 can of diced tomatoes and 1 cup of chicken stock. Also added some scallops and squid. LOVED IT! Great recipe.

EXACTLY what I'm looking for in a big bowl of mussels. The tomato sauce is PERFECT with them!
