Linguine With Mussels and Tomatoes
1

Rinse the mussels well and beard if necessary. Set them aside.

2

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, until they’re fragrant, about 2 minutes.

3

Add the tomatoes and break them up a bit with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring frequently until the tomatoes have softened, about 5 minutes.

4

While the tomatoes cook, bring plenty of salted water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the linguine and cook 3 minutes, until al dente.

5

Add the mussels to the skillet, cover and cook until the mussels have opened up completely, about 3 minutes. Remove them from the skillet and keep them warm.

6

Drain the linguine and add it to the skillet. Add the lemon juice and the parsley and toss well. Divide the pasta among 4 bowls and top it with the mussels.
