A great meal in itself with hot rice or French bread to dunk in the soup, mussels are cooked to perfection in chicken stock.
I used frozen mixed veggies in a bag and prepared them just as the recipe states for the carrots and celery. I used frozen mussels out of a bag from Jewel and prepared them the same as the recipe calls for. I also cooked linguine noodles on the side, tossed with a little extra virgin olive oil and dried parsley before pouring the broth mussels and veggies over the noodles. It was an excellent and complete meal! - 06 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Absolutely the best mussels I have ever tasted!! They simply disappeared from everyone's plate. Perfectly cooked, fantastic flavor. - 18 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
So, soooo good! I doubled the amount of carrots and celery, and it was like serving a gourmet soup with mussels. I served it over pasta tossed in EVOO. This is a perfect recipe, and I will make it again. My kids loved it - even my super picky 5 year old requested it "tomorrow." - 23 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
