SUPER EASY MUSSEL PASTA
Boil equal parts white wine and water. Add cleaned and de-bearded mussels to pot, cover and cook roughly 5-7 mins-you want all the mussels to open.
Once open, pour mussels and liquid into a bowl and set aside.
Add your favourite jar of tomato based pasta sauce, choose one with seasoning, herbs and plenty of flavour to the pot, heat through and then return your mussels and liquid to the pot.
Mix through so the sauce coats all the mussels, serve over your favourite pasta and enjoy with some fresh crusty bread.
