This simple and delicious mussels recipe is restaurant-worthy. Just make sure you clean your mussels well before cooking: Give them a rinse under cold running water and use a brush to remove any barnacles or grit from the shell. Discard mussels with broken shells or those whose shells remain open after you tap them lightly. Pull off any fibrous "beard" that may be pinched between the shells.

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and garlic; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to high. Add tomatoes, wine, vinegar, oregano and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.
