Steamed Mussel Sauce with Lemon and White Wine

Published March 1, 1996.

Why this recipe works:

It took very little work to turn mussels into a quick pasta sauce. For our steamed mussel sauce recipe, we simply steamed the mussels in wine, strained the resulting broth to use in a simple sauce, and tossed both with linguine or spaghetti.

Serves 4

This sauce is fairly soupy, so serve it with bread. Use linguine or spaghetti and feel free to substitute littleneck clams for the mussels.
