Preparation

Clean the mussels and heat them in a large pan until they open. In a separate pan, put the whole tomatoes on to cook over low heat, sprinkling them with salt, sugar and oregano. Remove the artichokes from the jar and cut them into quarters. Cook the pasta. When the pasta is al dente, drain and toss in the pan where you caramelized the tomatoes. Add the mussels and artichokes, then the tomatoes. Serve warm.

Tips
You can prepare the 'preserved' tomatoes using our quick method and a frying pan, without even having to turn on the oven
Trivia
When orecchiette and maccheroncini pasta shapes are combined, then the Puglian pasta 'maritati' - meaning 'married' - is the result
