I cook fresh egg linguine al dente, and drain the water to create the perfect plate of pasta. After the Mussels have opened up I top them with the best Italian Marinara Sauce.

  1. so I tried this recipe twice…the first time…it was the best muscles marinara I’ve ever had! The 2nd time, it was too watery… Any suggestions? Don’t remember if I used slightly less water/wine the first time, if I poured out some liquid after the muscles opened and released the water they were holding, or if I reduced it, which I don’t believe I did.

  2. I did not mean to be rude 😀 In my experience when the mussels or clams for that matter open up they are done. They should be removed from the heat quickly, any more cooking just makes them tough. My $.02

  3. What are your thoughts on cooking the mussels in the marinara sauce as opposed to finishing with it? Maybe it would be best to dilute it a bit with water to get the steam you need?
