Spaghetti Con Cozze E Pomodoro (Mussels and Tomatoes)
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
17 ingredients
6 servings
I got this book from "Today's Cooking with Chef Pasquale". It is pretty easy to make and the final product is to die for. I have not made it in a few years so preparation time is an estimate. The flavour of the white wine really comes through in the sauce and it complements the mussels well. To reduce the fat and calories slightly, I once omitted the butter as an ingredient and it still tasted amazing. I would serve it with a leafy green salad and some Italian bread.
