Scrub mussels under cold water; pull off hairy beards. Discard any that don't close when tapped. Set aside. In large non-stick saucepan, heat oil; sauté onions and garlic for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine, basil and oregano; cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add mussels; cover and cook until mussels fully open, 4-5 minutes. Discard any that do not open. Arrange mussels in bowls; pour sauce over top.
