How to make Pasta and beans with mussels
If you use the beans in a jar, drain and rinse them quickly under running water by putting them in a colander, put 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, a clove of garlic and 6-7 cherry tomatoes in a saucepan,
cook for a few minutes and add the beans, always over medium heat, let the beans flavor, pour 2-3 glasses of water and cook the beans over medium heat for 10-15 minutes
Meanwhile prepare the mussels, put them in a basin full of water, discard the open mussels, remove the byssus (the beard that comes out of the mussels) by grabbing it with your fingers and pulling with a firm movement. Then brush the outer surface with a kitchen scourer, rinse under running water, the mussels are now clean, put them in a pot and add a glass of water, turn on the heat (medium heat), cover the pot and in a few minutes mussels will all be opened and cooked. Turn off the heat, put the cooking water of the mussels in a container, filter with a very tight mesh strainer and set the water aside.
Put in one pan half of the beans, instead blend the other half remaining in the pot with an immersion blender,
add the water of the mussels in the pot, bring to a boil and add the pasta, cook the pasta by half-closing the pot with the lid the water during cooking should be almost completely absorbed, one minute before the end of cooking the pasta put everything in the pan with beans,
add the mussels and chopped parsley. Turn and yours is ready Pasta And Beans With Mussels.
