Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk, chicken broth, and curry paste, stirring well. Bring to a boil, and add mussels. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until mussel shells open. Discard any unopened shells.

Divide pasta evenly between 2 shallow bowls; pour broth mixture evenly over pasta, and top evenly with mussels. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, if desired.
