Jw cooks: Mussels and Meatballs served over pasta.

We had leftover mussels from last night so Jw made lunch with them today! I woke up smelling something tomato-based so I knew lunch was going to be good. I just didn't expect it to be < - - t h i s - - > good.

Jw and I are very shall we say, instictive, cookers, (especially him!) so we don't really measure things when we cook. I'm usually able to give estimated measurements with my recipes but he doesn't really remember much for this one. According to him it's reaaaally simple to make, so here you find his really simple recipe (and simple it is. can you believe it). 

Mussels and Meatballs served over pasta

Olive oil 
Mussels, cleaned and boiled 
Meatballs (cooked)
1 Tomato, diced 
Tomato based pasta sauce
Half an onion, chopped 
Half a lemon (optional)
 Pasta (boiled) 

  1. Heat olive oil in a big pan.
  2. Add in a generous dollop of pasta sauce.
  3. When it bubbles, add the diced tomato and the onion in, stir.
  4. Put the mussels in, cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes, then simmer.
  5. Add in the meatballs, stir well.
  6. Serve over pasta. 
It was a rainy afternoon, so it definitely hit the right spot. Goodbye summer! Fall is my favourite season because it's not too cold and fall flavours are the best: pumpkin, cinnamon, and who can forget apple pie??? I'm going to make a HUGEEEE apple crumble one of these days and feed on it for as long as I can, mmhm.
