Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, sauté the shallots and garlic. Add the wine and stock. Bring up to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Add the mussels to the wine and cover. Simmer the mussels for 3-4 minutes or until the shells open. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper. Drop the pasta into the boiling salted water. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the water and drain. Add the pasta directly to the sauté pan. Divide the pasta between two bowls and spoon the mussels on top. Garnish with the grated cheese and parsley. Serve with the crusty bread.
