Rachael Ray 30 Minute Recipe For Mussels With Linguine In Roasted Red Pepper Sauce


  1. Salt
  2. Two 9-ounce packages fresh linguine
  3. One 12- to 16-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and halved
  4. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 1 onion, chopped
  6. 3 to 4 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  7. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  8. 1 cup dry white wine
  9. One 14.5-ounce can crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
  10. Black pepper
  11. 36 mussels (about 2 pounds), debearded


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente.
  2. While the pasta is working, using a food processor, puree the roasted peppers.
  3. In a deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the wine and reduce for about a minute, then stir in the pureed peppers and the tomatoes; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Add the mussels to the pan, cover tightly and cook until the shells open, about 5 minutes (discard any unopened mussels).
  4. Divide the mussels among 4 large, shallow bowls and spoon a little sauce on top. Using tongs, transfer the cooked pasta from its water to the sauce in the skillet and toss to coat. Pile the pasta alongside the mussels.

Serves 4.
