Drain off the liquid in the bag and use the mussels straight away.

Boil the pasta according to directions until al dente.

Heat the olive oil in a large pot with lid. Add the diced onion, garlic and pepper. Cook until the onions are tender. Add tomato, zest and white wine. Simmer until reduced by half and taste for seasoning.

Bring the sauce to the boil, open the pack of Live Pot Ready Mussels and add to the sauce. Put the lid on and cook for 3 minutes. Don’t overcook mussels – they’ll lose their soft texture.

Don’t throw away any that are unopened after cooking – prise open and eat!

Meanwhile, drain the pasta, drizzle over the extra olive oil and toss through the pasta. Add the cooked pasta and parsley to the sauce and toss with tongs to combine.
