Step 1
Wash and clean the Fresh Mussels (2.2 lb) . Remove any dirt which has crusted on the shell, then place them in a large pot and cook on medium heat covered with a lid until they open up.
Step 2
As soon as they open, turn off the heat, transfer the mussels with their shells into a plate and filter the water into a glass. Set aside.

For the filling, in a large bowl place Eggs (6) , half of the filtered water, 1 clove of minced Garlic (1 clove) , Fresh Parsley (1 Tbsp) , Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , Pecorino Romano Cheese (3 Tbsp) , and Breadcrumbs (as needed) . Mix all the ingredients together adding more breadcrumbs to get a wet but dense paste. If needed add some Salt (to taste) . Set the mixture aside and wait for 10 minutes.
Step 4
Use the mixture as filling to stuff the shells of the mussels. Be generous!
Step 5
In a large saucepan heat Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) with the Onion (1) , and 1 clove of minced Garlic (1 clove) .

When golden brown in color add Tomatoes (14 oz) . Add the remaining filtered water, some Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and let the sauce simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Add more water if needed.
