Creamy Spaghetti with Mussels


  • 100 g mussels
  • 100 g spagetti
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 x red onion
  • 1/5 dl dry white wine
  • 1/2 dl cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon


  1. Rinse and wash the mussels well. Discard any shells that are damaged or do not close if you carefully hit them against the kitchen counter.
  2. Boil spaghetti according to the instructions on the package.
  3. Mince the garlic and red onion and add to a saucepan with oil or butter. Cook until the onion is soft.
  4. Add white wine (or apple juice) and mussels. Let the mussels steam with the lid on until all the shells open.
  5. Take the mussels out of the pot and discard the mussels that did not open. Add cream to the pan and cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.
  6. Fold the spaghetti and mussels into the creamy sauce, and season with fresh lemon juice and finely chopped basil.
