I love this recipe and have used it for years. My grandmother used to make it at Christmas time. I use this as a CORE Weight Watcher Recipe, but it is also a very low points Flex recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Begin by boiling the water for the pasta.
  2. As soon as you put the water on to boil, clean mussels under cold water, removing all beards.
  3. Sauté the onions and garlic in the oil until translucent.
  4. When translucent, add the wine and bring to a boil.
  5. By this time the water for the pasta will be ready, so just add the pasta to the water.
  6. When the wine comes to a boil, lower the heat to a smimmer, add the mussels and cover. Cook about 10 minutes until the shells open.
  7. Drain the pasta and place in a serving bowl.
  8. Pour the mussels and the juice over the pasta.
  9. Garnish with parsley.
