    Canadian_in_the_Bay's Note:

    I got this book from "Today's Cooking with Chef Pasquale". It is pretty easy to make and the final product is to die for. I have not made it in a few years so preparation time is an estimate. The flavour of the white wine really comes through in the sauce and it complements the mussels well. To reduce the fat and calories slightly, I once omitted the butter as an ingredient and it still tasted amazing. I would serve it with a leafy green salad and some Italian bread.

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti, and cook according to package directions.

      This one was a toss up between two and three stars... Please be warned that DH is a severe critic when it comes to pasta... other peoples preferences might well give this 5 stars. Hubby liked the pasta and the mussels, but said that, adding the tomato puree and the tomatoes were a big no no , at least for him. He did as the recipe directed and he told it as he saw and tasted it :) I don't eat mussels due to seafood allergies so couldn't tell you if that's a reasonable comment to make or if it's his heavy handed reviewing... PLEASE I would love someone else to make this and let me know :) I know DH adores mussels and pasta, he's just been pretty tough on this recipe. Hubby ate this no problem, just said it wouldn't be a favourite as it stands with the tomato in it. He enjoyed giving this a go. Thanks!
