Mussels in Tomato-Parsley Sauce Baked in Parchment

Recipe photo courtesy of Hans Gissinger

This is a first course you can tear into: Mix mussels -- low in fat; high in nutrients, particularly vitamin B12 -- with garlic, oregano, parsley, pepper, tomatoes, olive oil, and white wine. Pour it all onto parchment, fold up, and bake until the bag billows.

On "Mad Hungry," Lucinda used 1/2 cup dry white wine instead of 1/4 cup.

Cook's Notes

Bake the packet in a pan that can go right to the table, and serve the dish family style, with a loaf of crusty bread.

    I made this dish with a different type of mussel. I used New Zealand Green Mussels and came out fantastic.

    Martha Web Folks..... Where is the easy to find PRINT icon. This is not the expected Martha service. Would like to print the recipe but can not from this page. One can highlight-copy-paste in WORD-save- then print.... but why bother when we can just go to food network where they make it all convenient for the customer.

    columbia93 I had reported this problem to customer service last week and still has not been corrected, because they kept sending me emails on what was wrong with my computer; kept sending me emails on what I should be doing, which did not work, because they did not understand the problem.

    Just want to ask where in the world are any options to print this? (Not loving Martha's new design, either.) I would like to print this recipe but the only way to do it is to include unnecessary stuff. Even if I just try to do a "selection" - stuff from the left side. I love these shows and would love to make the dishes but the info is either incomplete or too fast to write it during the show and I've come to depend on the websites. PLEASE fix this!
