Scrub and debeard the mussels. In a very large Dutch oven, heat the oil on medium. Add the garlic and cook 1–2 min., until golden, stirring. Deglaze the pan with the wine and then stir in the pasta sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
To pot, add mussels and cover. Cook 7–8 min., until mussels just open, shaking pot occasionally.
