Great Entree for a dinner party. I cooked in two lots and placed 2 big bowls of just the mussels on the table , then served the noodles on the plate for each person. A bit messy, but heaps of good comments.

So yummy! Went down an absolute treat. I didn't have the Coriander, but I bet that would have made it magic! Even my 8yr old loved it and asked the next morning if there was any leftover that she could take to school for lunch.
