Pasta with potato cream and mussels

A quick pasta to make but of great effect. The potatoes are delicately combined with mussels to create an ideal first course for these holidays.

If instead of mussels you prefer another type of ingredient, you can replace them with bacon shrimps, with small pieces of smoked salmon, or for those who do not like fish, crispy bacon. Let your imagination run wild.

Put a pot of water on the fire. Do not salt the water before it starts boiling.
