Get your spaghetti on.
Mussel time. Pour your mussels into the pan followed by your wine. Cover for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, all the mussels should have opened up and you can add your Elmlea. Add your remaining parsley and add this to the pan. Add a good pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper, squeeze the juice of a whole lemon into the pan and stir.
Once your spaghetti is cooked, add it to the mussels along with a few tablespoons of pasta water and fold everything together. And that’s it! So simple and easy!
