Mussels with Tomatoes & Wine Sauce

A well-loved delicacy served a few times a year at my house! The reaction is always a positive one ….every single time! It’s a wonderful starter dish before dinner, shared among the table unless of course, you’re a big seafood connoisseur.  In that case, serve with some crusty bread for dipping and have it as your main dish!.
