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.
