Spaghetti With Mussels

Adapted from Giada de Laurentis

1 pound dry spaghetti
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 pound of mussels, scrubbed clean
½ cup dry white wine
½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon butter
Freshly grated zest of 1 lemon

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the spaghetti and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame.  When hot add the shallots and sauté until soft.  Add the garlic and sauté until garlic is golden in color and the shallots are translucent.  Add the mussels, wine, 2 tablespoons of the parsley and ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until most of the clams and mussels have opened.  Whisk in butter to thicken the sauce slightly.

Drain the spaghetti, reserving 1/3 cup of the cooking liquid.  Do not rinse the spaghetti with water; you want to retain the natural starches that help the sauce adhere to the spaghetti.  Toss the spaghetti with the clam mixture in pan to coat.  Add enough of the reserved cooking liquid to moisten.

Transfer the pasta to a large serving bowl.  Sprinkle the lemon zest over the pasta. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve immediately.
