Doesn't that look like a lovely dinner? Does it look like it may have taken some time to prepare? This has been one of those days in one of those weeks. You know the type. Those days when there's not enough hours or energy to go around. Those are the evenings where you need some secret weapons in your arsenal.
By using these easy shortcuts, you will have dinner on the table in 15 minutes!
Cook the noodles according to package directions. (7 minutes cook time + 2 minutes rest time!)
The mussels are microwaved for 5 - 7 minutes. (I cooked these for 6!)
While these are cooking, slice and toast some bread and slice some lemons for squeezing over the mussels.
When the noodles are cooked, pour into a large bowl. Top with the cooked mussels.**
Serve with the toasted bread and lemon wedges!
** Discard any mussels which don't open.
