Steamed Clams or Mussels in Seasoned Broth

A simple dish like steamed clams or mussels doesn't take much more time than warming up a frozen dinner, but it provides a hands-on meal worth the minimal extra effort. Throw a few ingredients into a pan for a savory broth to steam the shellfish in; our recipe offers three quick options. While it heats, scrub hard-shell clams or mussels, then add them to the bubbling liquid. Within five minutes, dinner's on. Add crusty bread and a favorite spinach salad, then sit down to a real dinner.
