Marinara Sauce with Mussels and Parsley

Marinara Sauce with Mussels and Parsley

Real Simple SEPTEMBER 2006

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 28-ounce can whole or diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 16 ounces linguine
  • 1 pound cleaned mussels
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Preparation

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until golden but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and their juices, red pepper, oregano, salt, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (crushing the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon if using whole tomatoes) until the sauce thickens slightly, about 20 minutes. Add the mussels. Cover and cook until the mussels open, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove and discard any that don't open.

Meanwhile, cook the linguine according to the package directions. Add the linguine and the parsley to the sauce and toss.
