During the summer months I have boiled live mussels briefly, opened them and got the flesh out, chopped into about 3 pieces. Retain the mussel water strain it to get rid of any shell etc then use this to boil your pasta (gives it a great flavour) when the pasta has cooled mix in mussels (chopped) and spring onion or chives and a good mayonaise. Or anything else like grated cheese etc. You can do this hot as well.
Easy peasy.

I have been known to save & freeze the water from shellfish and use it in fish soups & chowders, it is all about flavour.
Most valuable flavouring, that most just chuck down the drain.
