Mussels with pesto

Yesterday day was a great day of fun and sun at the beach.  And the perfect low tide to pick a limit of bay mussels of the jetty.  The only thing about getting mussels off the jetty is that they tend to be on the small size.  The largest one that I found was about 4 inches.  The average was just over 2 inches.  With all these delicious mussels I decided that mixing them in with some pesto would make for a great dinner tonight.  That and it’s a very simple recipe.  This will make two servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb cooked and shelled mussels
  • 2 ounces pesto
  • 4 ounces dried pasta of choice

Cook up your pasta as per directions and drain.  While the pasta is cooking warm up the mussels with the pesto in a large saute pan.  add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss to coat the noodles evenly with the pesto.  pour into bowls and enjoy.
