If I need to make dinner for a large group of people, I like to keep frozen mussels or prawns on hand. They are already prepared and shelled, making them a breeze to prepare; they only take a few minutes to cook, and I plan to add them at the very end of the recipe.

The fresh mussels called for in the frozen mussels recipe must be cooked before they can be used in the dish. e mussels are steamed in a covered pot with some water and wine until they open, and then the meat is removed from the shells and tossed with the pasta.

This recipe calls for 500 g (1 lb) of frozen mussels. 10 kg / 22.35 lb) of cooked and frozen mussels and 400 g (0.91 lb) of For four servings, you'll need 45 kilograms (about 90 lb.) of fresh tagliatelle pasta.

The onions and garlic will need to be finely chopped because they will be the first ingredients to be fried. Since there isn't a lot of time to cook them, I prefer to make them as tiny as possible. Frozen Mussels Recipe-Chopping Shallot and Garlic Cloves on Chopping Board

The fennel bulb follows; after peeling off the outermost layer, I divide it in half lengthwise and then again crosswise, and finally slice it as thinly as possible.

I throw in some tagliatelle pasta, which only takes about five minutes to cook because it's so fresh. Pasta made from dry ingredients needs to be boiled in salted water until "al dente," then drained and mixed with the sauce.

To enhance the flavor, I sprinkled in a half teaspoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of dried oregano. Frozen Mussels Recipe-Simmering Tagliatelle Pasta With Vegetables in Double Cream and White Wine Sauce in the Pan

After two minutes, add the frozen mussels and the chopped parsley to the pasta and sauce, mix gently so that everything is combined, then cover and set aside for three more minutes. Keeping the lid on while cooking pasta ensures that none of the liquid will evaporate, that the pasta will absorb all of the liquid, and that the heat will be contained within the pot.
