Pasta with beans and mussels:

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time: 30 min of preparation, 90 min of cooking
  • Type of Cooking: Pan
  • Doses for: 4 person

Ingredients

  • 250 g of fresh beans (or 400 g of already boiled beans)
  • 1 kg of shelled mussels
  • 300 g of tube-shaped pasta
  • 15 cherry tomatoes (or 1 package of peeled cherry tomatoes)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Bay laurel chilli
  • Salt

Preparation

With a brush clean the mussels well and put them in a covered pan over high heat to open them. Remove the mussels from the shell and keep them aside. Shell the beans, rinse them and boil them with a few bay leaves (if you use those already boiled, skip this part). In a saucepan, heat a clove of garlic in extra virgin olive oil together with parsley and chili pepper. Add the cherry tomatoes and beans and cook. In the meantime, bring the water to boil to cook the pasta. Salt the water, lower the pasta and drain it al dente (at least 2 minutes before cooking is completed). Add the pasta to the beans, then the mussels after cooking with the heat off and mix for a few minutes. Add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and serve.
