I found this on another site and really enjoyed the strong flavours with the mussels. The pasta can be left out and the mussels just eaten with crusty bread for a perfect meal for two (hungry) people!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook garlic and red pepper flakes in oil in a deep 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes with puree, tomato paste, herbs, capers, olives, and wine and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally and breaking up tomatoes, until sauce is thick, about 15 minutes.
  3. Cook linguine in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until al dente, then drain in a colander.
  4. While pasta cooks, increase heat under sauce to moderately high and add mussels, then cook, covered, until mussels just open wide, checking frequently after 3 minutes and transferring to a bowl. (Discard any mussels that remain unopened after 6 minutes.).
  5. Serve linguine with mussels and sauce.
