INGREDIENTS PER 2 PEOPLE
spaghetti, 8,8 oz
mussels, 2 lb 3 oz
garlic, 1 clove
extra virgin olive oil
Rinse and clean the mussels very well. Put them in a pot and cook them about 7-8 minutes to open up.
Sprinkle with pepper, thyme and bay leaf. Shake the pot often. Do not discard the boiling water, you will need this later!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the spaghetti al dente.
Meanwhile, remove the seeds from the tomatoes and cut them in pieces.
Cut the garlic in slices, chop the bay leaf. Put some olive oil in a pot. Fry the garlic and the tomatoes. Add the mussels, after you removed half of them from the shells. Add the spaghetti and one large spoon of the mussels cooking water.
Season with pepper and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Stir everything well.
Let the spaghetti with the mussels rest for about one minute. Serve in a deep dish.
