    Pasta con cozze

    As I cook once in a year I think I share the pictures with you.

    We got some fresh mussels so I looked up a recipe for mussels in white wine. It is easy and delicious. Here the mussels are the expensive ingredient and the wine is cheap, I guess in Thailand it is the other way around.

    First one onion has to be chopped and one piece of garlic sliced.



    Both are fried in olive oil in a pot. Then you put the mussels in. At this moment I remembered to take a picture.

    I forgot, of course you should rinse the mussels before you put them into the pot.

    After a few minutes, during which you turn them around a bit, you add about half a bottle of dry white wine, preferably Soave as this is an italian recipe.


    In the meantime you have cooked the pasta and after the mussels have cooked for five minutes with the white wine at not too much heat, you mix the pasta under the mussels.

    I have to work a bit on presentation but it was a lovely dinner but very easy to make.

    Looks great Fabian..one of my favourite dishes...mopping up the juices with some nice crusty bread is a glorious addition.

    Nice one Fabian and I can remember eating something similar in Germany on many occasions mainly in the beer gardens.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Once a year? What is the occasion?


    Yes, excellent food . . . had something similar in Davao last week, but they used the small green-lipped mussels and a tomato-based 'soup'.

    A good dish, thanks Fabian

    No garlic? salt? pepper?

    Of course it was easy to cook. It's just mussels doused in white wine.
