Mussel Alfredo

Michelle Wright from WPXI came to interview me and I made her Mussel Alfredo.
Here is the story on the news.

You need:
Mussels in shells
Nob of butter
1 cup Whole milk or heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon Flour
garlic salt
Sliced mushrooms (optional)

Boil the water and cook the pasta to al dente.
Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour and mix until they combine.
Slowly add the milk or cream and keep the heat on until the sauce thickens.
In another pan heat a little EVOO and cook the mushrooms add to sauce.
Put the mussels in their shells in the hot pan add some garlic salt - heat.
Drain the pasta and add to the sauce (I add a splash of the pasta water to the sauce).
Plate the pasta then add some mussels.
