Time: 30 minutes. We've taken the classic Italian pasta combination of spinach, sweet dried currants, and garlic, and kicked it up with robust mustard greens.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta as package directs.

Step 2

Meanwhile, toast pine nuts in a large, dry frying pan over medium heat; set aside. Add oil to pan, then add garlic and chile flakes. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add currants, the greens with water clinging to them, and salt. Cover; cook until greens are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in drained pasta and reserved nuts. Serve with cheese.

very tasty...especially good when you get a fusilli, a bit of green, a slice of garlic, fruit and nut in each bite. I put in dried cranberries instead of currants, and sliced almonds instead of pine nut, because that is what I had. It was still great, a wonderful quick dinner.
