This is one of my favorite dish. I have never tried with the Vita Sana brand Tomato, going to get them today and serve it tomorrow as appetizer! Thanks Whole foods secret ingredients.

Scott, I made the recipe on Thanksgiving day lunch as my appetizer, and it was a hit! Everyone enjoyed the Vita Sana Tomato and they wanted all the Mussels to be opened. If i had simmer more than 30 min than what you have told me, will be be bad? I felt like if i had cooked more minutes all the Mussels would have open up. Nontheless, it was the hit of my Turkey dinner. Thank you.

I have been trying all sorts of tomatoes - top brands, ect to produce an authentic tomato sauce (garic/basil only). It wasn't until I tried a can of Vita Sana San Marzano tomatoes (whole, peeled) that I finally reproduced the correct taste. Thank you!
