I’m less than mussels or absolute perfection it’s just not worth making we’ve taken a few steps already and we’ve done a couple things just to get you know things done a little quicker now for the mussels she just basically steamed the mussels and then just took them out of the shell and then reserved them in a little bit of the steam water okay she said come to Italy if you want to eat really good mussels and I concur to that and then. we’ve got some small shape pots that you can use any small cut paths that you prefer we just use like a little detail eeny but whatever you prefer is really fine and then for the beans she just cooks some kind of lean beans ahead of time what you can do is you can do the same thing you can cook some ahead of time or you can use a couple of 15 ounce cans of cannellini beans just make sure you drain them and use fresh water now if, you come with me to the stove I’ll walk you through the little sauce.


She made because she ran out of already homemade marinara sauce she right now so she just made a quick sauce but you can use any sauce and you’ve got on hand woodwork absolutely beautiful for this you could use homemade marinara sauce or you can even make your own or you can buy some more tomato puree and it’s a NATO product really will do but let’s head over to the stove so, I can kind of explain to you what she’s got going she had about three tablespoons of oil in a skillet and fried up and fried up some garlic and then she added some plum tomatoes she added some plum tomatoes that were chopped up kind of small and they’ve just been cooking for about five minutes and now.I’m added some basil chamametchi costa de mano and now she’s gonna turn that up and put her to leave with our onion and also let it move and now. we’re gonna add the mussels with of liquid now she’s adding all the liquids because we’re not gonna hardly add any salt to the final dish because the liquid is really really salty so you don’t you’re not going to need to add any extra salt to the dish.


I’m going to add the tomato mixture the tomato and mussel mixture make sure you scrape every little thing out but you went up with Santa really give it away yeah and now this is going to come up to a rolling boil because now the temperature dropped a bit because we added the mussels now let this come up to a rolling boil and then it’ll be time to add the pasta.when that came up to it when the soup came up to a rolling boil I just added the past and they cooked for just about seven to eight minutes until it.
