Here we go with the first recipe of FoodieWednesday and it's a delicious dish of Spaghetti with Mussels.
I know it's not very christmassy or winter-y but I love seafood all year around so I happened to be cooking this dish and wanted to share it with you.
Here's what you need for 3 servings:
100 g of frozen mussels without shell
1 clove of garlic
1 spoon of parsley
Half a glass of tomato sauce
280 g of Spaghetti
Prepare a pan with a little bit of olive oil and one clove of garlic cut into two, and put it on low heat. Leave it there for a couple of minutes. When it starts bubbling over, add the frozen mussels and let them sear for five minutes. Meanwhile boil a pot of water and weigh the spaghetti. I suggest breaking them into two, so they will cook easily and evenly. When the water boils, add sea salt and drop the spaghetti in; let them cook for about 10 minutes (more or less, always try them!).
In the meantime you would check the mussels and if they dry up too much, just add half a glass of water, as simple as that. A couple of minutes later add the parsley and the tomato sauce with a pinch of salt and blend everything together nicely with a spoon.
Let the mussels sit until the spaghetti are ready, then strain them, put it back on the empty pot and add the mussels' sauce. Blend everything and you're ready to serve (and eat!).
