The fresh, clean flavour of a classic basil pesto and the richness of pasta are magical partners to Kinkawooka Live pot ready Mussels.
1 pack Kinkawooka Live pot ready Mussels
250gm fresh or dried rag pasta
A splash of dry white wine
100gm pesto sauce
1/2 bunch torn basil leaves
Drain off the liquid in the bag and use the mussels straight away.
Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until tender but still has some “bite”, drain and set aside.
Cook mussels with a splash of white wine in a pot, lid on, high heat, for 4 mins. Don’t overcook mussels – they’ll loose their soft texture.
Remove mussels, add pesto to liquid and stir, add butter and melt, add pasta.
Add mussels and torn basil, stir and pour into a hot bowl.
Don’t throw away any that are unopened after cooking – prise open and eat!
