Ingredients:

  • 2 ⅕ pounds mussels (scrubbed)
  • 5 2/7 ounces risoni (or small soup pasta)/span>
  • ¾ pint frozen peas
  • 2 bacon (rashers, diced)
  • 11/13 cup white wine (or cider)
  • 2 ⅓ jiggers créme fraiche (or cream)
  • 3 tablespoons leaf parsley (flat-, chopped)
  • Cracked black pepper (for serving)

 

Directions

Rinse and debeard the mussels.

Cook risoni in simmering salted water for 8 minutes or until al dente, drain and set aside. Cook the peas in simmering salted water for 1 minute, drain and set aside. Fry the bacon in a small pan until crisp and set aside.

Bring the wine to a boil in a large-lid pan over high heat. Add the mussels, cover, and cook for 2 minutes. Give the pan a good shake, then remove any opened mussels, cover, and cook for 2 minutes. Give the pan a good shake, then remove any opened mussels to a lidded bowl, to keep warm. Cover pan again and cook for an additional 1 minute, removing mussels as soon as they open.

Add the risoni, peas, créme fraiche, sea salt, and pepper to the cooking juices remaining in the pan and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring, until hot. Return the mussels to the pan, scatter with bacon, parsley and pepper, toss once or twice, and serve in warm pasta bowls.

Serve up a steaming bowl of this yummy dish and pair it with a crisp white wine, some warm garlic bread and a tomato salad for a seafood dinner experience that no one will soon forget!
