Little changes but was delicious - used 2 cups of wine, added onion, doubled garlic, used a tin of chopped toms and doubled mussels

It was good, but I think it needed tweaking. I’d love to know what others have done. I think it needed onions, less tomato paste, less wine. More garlic! 😀 Any thoughts?
