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
- 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.
