  • mussels - 24.5 oz (700 g) fresh or 17.5 oz (500 g) frozen
  • white wine - 1/3 cup (75 ml)
  • garlic - 2 cloves
  • bay leaf - 1
  • olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • bacon - 1.5 oz (40 g) smoked, cut into thin slices
  • leeks - 2 bunches, just the white part
  • thyme - 1 tsp fresh
  • tagliatelle - 9 oz (250 g)
  • oil
  • salt


If cooking fresh mussels, you need to clean their shells very well. Place them in a suitable container, pour on white wine, add 1 pressed garlic clove and bay leaf put in the microwave on high for 5 min. under a lid. Take the mussels out of their shells and save the sauce. You can also cook the mussels in a pan.

Put the olive oil in another container and heat it for 1 min. Add the bacon and turn on high for 2-3 min. Add the thyme, finely chopped leeks and other garlic clove and microwave for another 2-3 min. Add some of the broth from the mussels to them.

Put the pasta, oil and a little salt in boiling water, cover and cook 2-3 min. until boiled "al dente". Drain, mix with the mussels and sauce, stir and serve right away.

You can prepare this dish on the stove instead of the microwave. If desired you can add other seafood as well.

Also try tagliatelle with mushrooms and cream, tagliatelle with cream and boletus, tagliatelle with mushrooms, bacon and tomato sauce, tagliatelle with gorgonzola and walnuts, tagliatelle with chicken and broccoli, tagliatelle with cream sauce.find similar recipes here
