If you love Muscles and you love Pasta, then you will most likely love this recipe! I had found this recipe some time back and use it whenever I am having a hankering for shellfish! I love the flavor combination of this recipe.

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fennel, onion, and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Add tomato and next 6 ingredients (tomato through pepper); bring to a boil. Add mussels; cover and cook 3 minutes or until shells open.
