Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 lb. dry rigatoni noodles
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 and ¼ lb. Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 10 oz. trimmed and chopped mustard greens
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Cook rigatoni according to package instructions, making sure to save ⅓ cup of cooking liquid prior to draining. Whisk Dijon into reserved liquid and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large saucepan over low heat. Add garlic. Cook to infuse oil with flavor, 2-3 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add sausage. Use wooden spoon to break it up. Cook stirring occasionally until cooked through, 5 minutes.
  3. Add mustard greens, ⅓ at a time, allowing to wilt and make space before adding next addition. Stir in salt and cook stirring occasionally until greens are fully wilted, 3 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and the Dijon mixture. Stir to heat through. Toss with cooked pasta. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.
