This tasty Italian seafood recipe comes to us by Kristal McKanders from Nashville, TN. People say the way to a manâ€™s heart is through his stomach. Well, women love to eat too! A great way for men to show appreciation for their significant others is by learning to cook their partnersâ€™ favorite meal.
Country music artist Vince Gill recently teamed up with Johnny Carrabba, founder of Carrabbaâ€™s Italian Grill, to learn to do just that for his wife Amy Grant. Johnny taught Vince how to make Amyâ€™s favorite dish and popular menu item, Mussels in White Wine Sauce, in front of a small audience at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville as part of a fund raiser for a Nashville homeless shelter. Thanks Kristal!
