I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Speedy Mussels with Pasta

Picked up a bag of frozen mussel meat and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Turns out mussels are pretty high in protein (Yay!) and are a cinch to make with this creamy garlic pasta!

14 oz (400g) frozen cooked mussel meat, defrosted in fridge overnight
3-4 tsps minced garlic
5 shallots, thinly sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp dry oregano
1 cup cooking cream (35%)
2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp fennel seed
salt and pepper to taste
zest of 1 lemon

Start cooking the spaghetti and while it's cooking melt butter in a large skillet. Add the shallots and sauté on medium high heat 2-3 minutes, then add the mussel meat and cook another 2-3 minutes to heat through. Toss in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the cream, oregano, fennel seeds, salt and pepper. Heat on medium about 4-5 minutes or until cream is hot. 

Add the lemon zest then toss in the cooked and drained spaghetti.

Plate and serve topped with fresh chopped parsley, more black pepper and if you like, some grated parmesan cheese.
Dinner for 2-3 in under 30 minutes!
