Mussels with Sauce

Lois Hernandez


I went to Aldi’s the other day and picked up a package of frozen Mussels in a Garlic and Butter Sauce. My husband likes sea food a lot so decided to buy it and make a meal of it!

And so the experiment begins!!!!
I went through the fridge and picked a few ingredients, mixed everything together and cooked it on the stove top. The end result was a great tasting dish which I served on top of some Spinach Pasta Nests!
