Ingredients for 4 people

  • 4 large potatoes
  • 500 g pasta dough made with Sardinian semolina
  • 200 g Campidano grape tomatoes
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • basil leaves
  • 2 kg Nieddittas mussels
  • Extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • Salt and pepper


Boil the potatoes in plenty of water, mash them and season with oil, salt, pepper and mint. Knead the semolina with 250 g of water and form small ravioli with the potato and mint mash. In a pan, open the mussels with garlic and oil, shell them and add the halved grape tomatoes.

Let simmer for a few minutes until it forms a smooth sauce, then add the basil and cover. Boil the ravioli in plenty of water and drain them. Add them directly to the mussel and grape tomato broth. Serve in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil and garnish with fresh basil.
