2 lbs mussels, scrubbed and beards removed
5 garlic cloves, minced

3
Add wine and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add mussels and cover and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes, until mussels open, stirring occasionally to get the sauce into the mussels as they open. Discard any mussels that do not open.
