DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Remove the skin from the sausage and chop into 1/4-1/2 inch pieces. Combine the olive oil and sausage into a large, deep pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes.
  • When the sausage begins to brown, add the garlic.
  • Cook 1 or 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the tomatoes and 1/4 cup basil.
  • Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring, until tomatoes are softened. Add the water if you are not using canned tomatoes. Stir, add the mussels, cover, and turn heat to high.
  • Salt the boiling water and cook the pasta until it is al dente.
  • Cook the mussels, shaking the pot occasionally until all the mussels are open, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain the pasta, place in a large serving bowl, and pour the mussels and sauce over the pasta.
  • Garnish and serve.
