Baked Mussels in Tomato Sauce with Cheese

I was trying to clear whatever I have in the fridge and in my store before we move house to make thing easier. This was a combination of (frozen) mussels, a can of tomato base pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese which was exactly what I had and wanted to clear.

It's an easy dish. Almost an instant dish. You could have it with pasta but I had it with bread, a la chilli crab. :P

  • 10 Frozen Mussels
  • 2/3 - 1 can Campbell's Prego Tomato Base Pasta Sauce
  • 1 handful Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle of Dried Parsley (optional)

How to do it:
  1. Steam mussels for 2 minutes.
  2. Drain and set in an oven proof dish.
  3. Pour Pasta sauce over.
  4. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
  5. Give it a toss.
  6. Top with Mozzarella Cheese.
  7. Bake at 190C for 10 minutes or till sauce bubbles and cheese has melted.
  8. Sprinkle on some Parmesan Cheese if you like and serve immediately with pasta or bread.


  1. This looks SUPER GOOD! I absolutely love the idea of mussels baked in tomato sauce and cheese!
