Any whole-wheat pasta is all right in my book, I love the nutty flavor, and I love to cook with it all the time.

1-In a large skillet, over medium high heat add butter, oil, shallots, salt and pepper. Cook for few minutes until soft.

2-Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.

3-Lower the heat, add alcohol-free wine, mussels, and stir to mix, cover, and cook for 3-4 minutes.

4-With slatted spoon remove the mussels from the pan and set aside.

5-Turn the heat up and let the sauce reduce for about 3 minutes.

6-In the main time, remove the mussels from the shells and add to the sauce.
