Step by step recipe

Stage 1 -
1 hour 4 min.
Cook the mussels '
', then shell them (yes, I know this is a lot of work...).
Stage 2 -
Pour the mussel cooking juices into a small pan (leave the very bottom, as this always contains some sand). Reduce by 3/4 over high heat.
Pour in 250 ml
, pepper generously, but don't add salt at this point, as the cooking juices are generally quite salty. Leave to thicken on low heat.
Stage 3 -
Cook the spaghetti, drain and return to the pan over low heat.
Stage 4 -
Add the shelled mussels, pour in the sauce, add the grated Parmesan and mix well.
Stage 5 -
Finish by scattering with basil leaves (cut small using scissors).
Be careful when seasoning, as the mussel cooking liquid is generally fairly salty already, so you shouldn't need to add more salt. But add plenty of pepper, and do taste frequently.
