Mussels and Parmesan Bruschetta

We went to the supermarket yesterday and bought plenty of things we needed, things we had written down on our fancy shopping list. And, as usual, I picked up a few things that I didn’t really need …
I saw that Erik Kaiser had a nice round 1kg boule de campagne, so I bought one of those. I also bought a small bag of pre-cooked mussels without the shells.

I tossed the mussels in a frying pan with some finely chopped garlic and a dash of olive oil. Meanwhile I had some spaghetti cooking and in under 10 minutes I had a wonderful Spaghetti with Mussels. I believe cooking should be this simple. Of course you can check how Mario makes it as well

Now that was a great dish. But the post is about the bruschetta I made today using the leftovers. (no pics, no time!)
I sliced the bread I bought yesterday. Put in the rest of the mussels in the pan and heated them just a bit before putting in the slices of bread. I then flipped the bread and stacked the remaining bits of mussels on top. Grated some Parmigiano-Reggiano over that. Best bruschetta ever. Go ahead a try it 🙂
