Mussels with Garlic Tomato Sauce

This is a very simple recipe that my daughter, Hannah, created for dinner one evening. (Have I mentioned that she’s a natural in the kitchen? Proud mama moment.) 😀

Hannah did not measure her ingredients as she just threw everything together.  Luckily, you can “taste your way through this one.” 🙂

You’ll need a box of frozen mussels (thawed out), two large cans of tomato sauce, garlic (as much as you like), and some Dashida seasoning (or use salt), to taste.

Place the tomato sauce and garlic in a large pot over medium heat.  Season the sauce with Dashida (or salt).  Once the sauce is seasoned to your liking, add the thawed mussels.  Cook for a few minutes until the mussels are no longer raw.

Serve as-is or over a bed of cooked spaghetti noodles.
