Mussels Quick & Easy
  1. 1). Rinse and debeard the mussels. Discard any mussels with broken shells or that remain open after being “tapped”.
  2. 2). Heat olive oil in a metal frying pan. Add sundried tomato and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes— just enough to soften the garlic.
  3. 3). Add pesto and capers. Sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. 4). Add tomatoes, broth, oregano, salt and pepper to pan and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer.
  5. 5). Add the mussels to the broth, cover and simmer until all the mussels have opened (3-4 minutes). Discard any mussels that have not opened.
  6. 5) Serve soup style.
