  • Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Courgettes

Make the pasta by adding enough water and salt to the semolina to make a soft dough.

Let it rest and then shape the dough into twisted rings.

Start by boiling the mussels till they open up (discard any which remain closed) and drain.

In the same pan add some salt and boil the pasta.

In another pan fry the courgettes, the tomatoes and the herbs in some olive oil.

Add the mussels and the olives.

Toss in the cooked pasta and some saffron.

Cook for a couple of minutes, serve with a lemon wedge and drizzle some olive oil on top.
