Skill level: Easy

Serves: 5

Course: Dinner

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Skill level; Easy

  • 1.5kg mussels, cleaned
  • 500g linguine
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lemons, zest and juice
  • 45g flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 6 large tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 200g parmesan, grated

Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Add the olive oil to a large pot on medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 1-2 minutes until softened.
  4. Next, add the lemon zest and juice to the pot and mix to combine.
  5. Increase the heat to high before adding the mussels. Place the lid on top and cook for 3-6 minutes, or until the mussels have opened. Discard any mussels that remain closed.
  6. Reduce the heat a little before adding the chopped tomatoes. Mix through with the mussels and cook for a few minutes before adding the cooked pasta, chopped parsley and Parmesan (save a little for garnish).
  7. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of Parmesan to finish.

Tips

We used linguine, but spaghetti works too.
