Mussels with Wine & Garlic Sauce

mussels with wine and garlic sauce
Now that the holidays are over, I know one of my New Year’s Resolution is to save money and eat at home more.  My husband and I love seafood, and surprisingly this dish is really not that hard to make and doesn’t cost much.  Mussels usually come in at $4 a pound, and a bottle of wine will usually go between $5- $10.  So for $20 – you can have an excellent meal at home.
Mussels with Wine and Garlic Sauce
Prep time:  15 mins
Cook time:  15 mins
Total time:  30 mins
Serves: 3-4
Easy and surprisingly frugal!
  • 2 lb. mussels (make sure you discard any that are gaping open)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ C. onion, minced (or shallots)
  • ¾ C. dry white wine
  • ⅔ C. chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 lb. linguine noodles

Prepare linguine according to package directions. In a large skillet with a lid, melt the butter. Add olive oil and sauté the garlic and onions until translucent. Add the wine and mussels and about half of the parsley. Cover and heat until mussels have opened (about 8-10 minutes). Add remaining parsley as a garnish. Serve mussels and wine sauce over linguine.
