Garlic Butter Mussel Pasta

Jump to recipe

This Garlic Butter Mussel Pasta with white wine, lemon, chilli flakes, and thyme is an aromatic and relatively light recipe with a complex yet not overwhelmingly strong flavour profile.

Hello, everyone! Happy (upcoming) Easter weekend. Honestly, I even didn’t realize this until last weekend. Thus, I haven’t prepared any special holiday recipes. On the other hand, what could be better than a large bowl of hearty pasta? Best holiday recipe ever!

You probably know me as someone who likes to create compound flavour and texture profiles in pasta recipes. That’snot the case today. This Garlic Butter Mussel Pasta will require, besides pasta and mussels, just a couple of aromatic (and cheap!) ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry and fridge such as:

  • garlic
  • lemons
  • thyme (Fresh but dry would do too)
  • butter and olive oil
  • chilly flakes

The only thing that you might need to get is some white wine for steaming the mussels. However, no worries – you can always use simple water, and the result will be still great.

To wrap this up, let me wish you a lovely Easter weekend if you’re celebrating. Enjoy all the chocolate eggs, bunnies, and then this Garlic Butter Mussel Pasta.

See you soon!

    Definitely a great comforting dish this garlic butter mussel pasta Ben! I’ll happily eat this at any time of the year. It doesn’t have to be Easter. In fact it really doesn’t feel like Easter at all with everything thats going on at the moment. But Happy Easter anyway!

    I’m all about the white wine and mussels, Ben! First, as you pointed out, the flavor. But second, that means I get to have a glass of wine while dinner is getting made! And as far as the pasta? Laura is half-Italian which means that every holiday meal uses pasta in some way! This recipe sounds fancy enough for a restaurant but easy enough to make at home!
