Seafood Pasta Recipe

Posted on: January 27, 2010

We found some excellent mussels at the store on Saturday, and used them in a great seafood pasta:

1 Kielbasa Sausage

1 Can Chopped Clams

2 Pounds Mussels

2 Tablespoons Crushed Garlic

1/3 to 1/2 Cup Water

White Wine to taste

Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste

1 Handful Coarsely Chopped Basil Leaves

Parsley to garnish

3 Teaspoons Sugar

Boil your favorite pasta (We used spaghetti) and set aside.  Add the crushed garlic and cut Keilbasa to a heated skillet coated with cooking spray.  Sautee until the keilbasa is lightly browned, just enough to impart flavor, and set aside.

In a Dutch oven or similar vessel, place the mussels and water.  Cover to steam partially, then add the chopped clams, kielbasa, garlic, white wine, basil, sugar, and pepper.  Cover to continue steaming mussels over medium heat.  When the mussels are fully open, remove the cover and continue cooking on medium heat for a few minutes to allow the flavor of the wine to infuse.

Serve hot over pasta and garnish with parsley if desired.  Mangia!
