   1.  Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions or until
   firm to the bite.  Drain and place in serving bowl. 2. Pour boiling water
   over sun-dried tomatoes.  Let soak for 15 minutes. Drain and chop. 3. In
   large saucepan combine onions, wine and stock.  Bring to a boil. Add
   mussels.  Cover and simmer for approximately 3 minutes, or until mussels
   open.  Discard any that remain closed.  Remove mussels from shell and
   reserve. 4. In medium nonstick skillet, heat oil; saute garlic, red peppers
   and tomatoes just until peppers are tender, approximately 4 minutes. Add
   olives, sundried tomatoes and reserved mussels.  Pour over pasta. Sprinkle
   with Basil and pepper, and toss. TIPS. Replace mussels with clams or use a
   combination.  Buy dry sun-dried tomatoes, not one in oil to reduced
   calories and fat. Make ahead>>> Early in the day prepare entire sauce.
   Reheat gently, adding some water if sauce appears too thick. From Rose
