carraba-mussels-in-white-wine-sauce I know it’s only Tuesday and we usually do our Date Night Dish on Thursdays but I just scored the delicious recipe of Carrabba’s Mussels in White Wine Sauce that Country Music Star Vince Gill cooked for his wife Amy Grant so I figured I might as well share it with you. Besides, you need to watch the video and get the ingredients in advance that way you’ll be ready for your Friday’s romantic date-at-home :).

2 oz Olive Oil
1# Cleaned Canadian Mussels
1/4 Chopped yellow Onion
6 cloves Chopped Garlic
