Garlicky Greens Sauce

Silky bitter greens plus sweet dried currants are a favorite Southern Italian pasta pairing.
Garlicky Greens Sauce

The bite-sized greens and small dried fruit work well with a pound of farfalle, or bowtie pasta. If you can't find dandelion greens, try mustard greens or baby kale.
