Spaghetti With Mussels


½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

5 Thinly Sliced Garlic Cloves

1 Cup White Wine

2 Pounds Small Mussels (Scrubbed & Debearded)

1 Pound Spaghetti

¼ Cup Finely Chopped Italian Parsley

Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot and add 2 tablespoons of salt. In a 12 inch sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook until light golden brown (for about a minute). Add the wine and raise the heat. Bring to a boil and then add the mussels. Cook, stirring and tossing, until all of the mussels have opened up (about 4 minutes). Meanwhile, drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain well. Add the pasta to the pan with the mussels and cook over high heat for 1 minute. Add the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and serve immediately.
