This three-ingredient recipe is perfect for throwing together before loadshedding. The smoked mussels infuse the dish with oodles of flavour. It’s rich, smoky and surprisingly complex for a three-ingredient recipe!


  • 250 g Woolworths fresh fettuccine
  • 1 x 115 g can Woolworths smoke-flavoured mussels in canola oil
  • 1 cup cream

1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.

2. Heat a pan and pour in a little of the oil from the mussels.

3. Add the cream, then the mussels. Stir and allow to simmer for 1–2 minutes.

4. Add the pasta and season to taste. You won’t need much salt as the mussels are already salty.
