1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. each of cayenne pepper, oregano, basil and thyme

Mussels:
1 tsp. olive oil or butter
2 green (spring) onions, chopped
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1/2 green pepper, pith removed and sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 lb. cultured mussels
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tbsp. water

Make sauce: Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add garlic; saute for 1
minute. Add tomato sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, herbs and spices.
Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside.
