Cozze al Vino Bianco - (Mussels in a White Wine Sauce)

2 whole garlic cloves -- crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup julienned onions
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 cup dry white wine
64 mussels - (about 3 lbs.)
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
1/2 cup chicken stock -- (optional)

In a deep skillet, cook the garlic cloves until golden in the olive oil. Add onions and cook until wilted. Add red pepper flakes, thyme, and white wine, and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 2 minutes.

Add mussels and parsley. Cover tight and cook over medium flame until shells open (approximately 3 to 5 minutes). Add parsley, butter and bread crumbs, and if the mussels do not have enough juice, you can add chicken stock. Bring all to a vigorous boil for 2 minutes, shaking the skillet well so that all ingredients mix well.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
