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.
Fusilli with Mustard Greens and Currants
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.
