  Categories: Italian, Appetizers, Shellfish
       Yield: 36 Servings
 
       3    Dozen mussels
     1/2 c  Crushed tomatoes
       2 c  Bread crumbs
       4 T  Grated cheese
       3    Garlic cloves, diced
       2 T  Parsley, chopped
 
   Scrub mussels with a brush, pull off beards. Prepare a fry pan with a
   tight fitting lid that will hold all the mussels. Add 3-4 T olive
   oil, 1/3 cup water, salt, and pepper. Cover pan, let mussels steam
   over medium heat to open. Meanwhile combine bread crumbs, grated
   cheese, and garlic cloves, to use as stuffing. Remove mussels to cool
   and reserve liquid. Do not use unopened mussels. Remove mussels and
   open shells to lay flat. Do not break apart. Place one mussel in each
   shell, cover with prepared stuffing. Squeeze 1 T of crushed tomatoes
   on each mussel. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Drizzle with olive oil
   and remaining liquid from steam process to moisten bread crumbs. Bake
   at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Serve hot.
