mussels and _________ pasta? (trying out my new pasta machine... flavor combo quesiton)

Happy Easter Chowhounds!

I just got a new pasta machine (w00t) and bought some fresh mussels from the farmers market to make a olive oil based pasta pescatore (probably linguini or spaghetti, we'll see, my first time).

Anyway, before I ruin my first pasta, I was curious about some flavor combos. For example, I was thinking of making the pasta in a "cacio e pepe" (cheese and pepper) style with the mussels (and of course, the natural sauce they'd make), but I've always heard that fish and cheese are a no-go... does that apply with mussels too if I wanted to add pecorino or parmegiano?

And I'll probably throw in some roasted asparagus on top... any major flavor combo faux-paus?

Thanks!
-Nico
