Spaghetti and Mussels

Spaghetti and Mussels

Serves 2

The weather is getting hotter and I bet you feeling like eating food that can have a cool and soothing effect with your taste buds. One of Japan’s favorite summer menus is Spaghetti with mussels and fresh tomatoes with parsley. If you have those plants in the garden you can make it fresh by picking it just before cooking. The taste is light and fresh with a little sling of the sea. For me personally it is too sappari but it turned out that my husband and two daughters couldn’t have enough of it. It is very easy to make, perfect for a weekend lunch.
