FFwD: Mussels (and Shrimp) and Chorizo with Pasta

Mussels & Chorizo

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie involved mussels, which I am not always a huge fan of (although the mussels at Place Pigalle in Seattle are unbelievably delicious), but generally, aside from those, I can take or leave mussels. That being the case, I used about 1/2 pound mussels and a 1/2 pound shrimp for this dish. I also used real Spanish chorizo, which, much like bacon, makes everything awesome.

We had this with the pasta (multi-grain linguine) and it was a pretty good meal!

That’s about it. Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and below are my pictures.

I crisped up the chorizo briefly, before adding it into the tomatoes.

The tomatoes here were form our garden last Summer. I had roasted and froze them. So good!

All put together and ready to eat.


Oh, and you know when you have way too much time on your hands, and you see a dumb thing on teh internets and you get home and you’re all like, “Hey! I have bread. And a Cat!” Yeah, that.

And just so you know, she seemed to enjoy it and tried to eat the bread.
