Leftover sauce from Mussells Meunière. You can find the recipe here.


Heat the leftover sauce from Mussells Meunière over medium heat.  Add a splash or two of cream to thicken the sauce, and cook until it thickens, about 15 minutes.  If you have leftover mussels, add them to the sauce to warm. You can add them in the shell, or remove them from the shell.  Adding them at the end is best, so they do not get overcooked.  

Toss the sauce with linguini or spaghetti pasta cooked al dente. 

Many of the recipes I share have guidelines rather than exact measurements, since I often cook "au pif" as we say in France, meaning by feel.  It is possible to pull together great meals quickly without relying on recipes when you cook by feel, or Kitchen Intuition as I call it.  You can write to me anytime if you have questions.
