  1. Over medium heat, heat the olive oil in a large pot. Once the oil is hot, add in the garlic, lemon zest, fennel, salt, crushed red pepper flakes and pepper. After about 3 minutes, crumble in the sausage and thoroughly cook over medium-high heat for about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the rosemary and pour the wine into the sausage mixture.
  3. Bring to a boil then lower the heat to medium.
  4. Add in the mussels, steaming them with the pan covered for about 4-5 minutes, until the mussels open.
  5. You can put the mussels into one large serving dish and garnish with parsley or divide the mussels among 6+ bowls with the sausage and broth.
  6. Have fun pairing this dish with mom’s favorite salad, bread and wine! We like to serve this dish with grilled Italian bread, a simple arugula salad and a light, crisp Pinot Grigio.
