  • Incredible!
    this is wonderful. I had cooked mussel shelled meats and had 8 ounce, made the sauce/ simmered down, added mussels, fresh herbs. Used more tomato as wanted lots of sauce-so used 14.5 oz can diced tomato/ 1/4 shallot/ garlic/ 1/4 wine, no oil used. Good with steamed veggies, crusty bread. Great! - 5/10/19
