Zuppa di cozze - mussels


- 1 Kg of mussels
- Lots of fresh parsley
- 2 or 3 large garlic cloves
- 6 ripe tomatoes
- 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 4 slices of Italian style bread


Step 1

Clean the mussels, washing well and getting rid of any 'beard'.

Step 2

Chop the parsley, garlic and tomatoes. In a large pot, place the oil, the mixture of garlic and parsley and bring to an almost boil.

Step 3

Add the chopped tomatoes, some salt and cook for about 10 min on a low heat with the cover on, stirring often.

Step 4

In the meantime, grill the bread and rub with some garlic. Add the mussels and cook on a rolling heat until the mussels open - about 5-6 mins- stirring from time to time.

Step 5

Serve in a soup plate in their own juice, adding a slice of bread, some freshly ground pepper and a piece of parsley for decoration.
