Hi I am again in Japan....fully jet-lagged . It's past four o'clock in the morning and I'm wide awake....counting down how many days left I have to go back home and have the chance to eat some pasta... oh well I still have a week of work...three more more flights left before I'll be able to go home...... Never I can be on a diet a bit longer, I even joined the gym last week...need to get ready for my summer vacations in september...
But no more talk...just a quick and delicious recipe. You got to try this!

  • 180g home made spelt pasta (for the recipe click here)
  • 400g mussels
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Chopped parsley
  • Grated pecorino cheese
  • Extra virgin olive oil
First of all wash and clean the mussels. Transfer them to a large pan, sprinkle with chopped garlic and parsley, cover with the lid and cook over high heat for a few minutes. Filter the cooking water and keep it aside to toss the pasta later. Remove mussels from shells. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, transfer them in a large frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil and cook for two minutes. Add the mussels with some of the cooking water. Meanwhile cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Drain pasta, add it to the mussels and cherry tomatoes, sprinkle with grated pecorino cheese and toss the pasta. Sprinkle some more cheese and serve immediately.
