1. In a large stockpot, heat the extra-virgin olive oil and lightly saute the onion till translucent.

2. Add chopped garlic and chili flakes, saute until fragrant.

3. Add white wine and chopped tomatoes till boil.

4. Add mussels, parsley and capers, and cover quickly to let the steam cook the mussels.

5. Stir the mussels after 1 minute and cover again. Repeat after 2 more minutes.

6. Check the mussels, if they are open and plump, they are cooked.

This recipe doesn't tell you how much of the ingredients to use. No good without the amount to use no stars for this one.
