This is great as a light meal with a salad and crusty bread for dipping.

Directions

  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.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Delicious! My husband and I made this and served it over linguine. The sauce is just awesome-capers add a touch of salt and the red pepper gives it a nice kick. I added some white wine before I put the mussels in the pot. This is a new favorite! Thanks.

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.
