“This is a Michael Chiarello recipe that came with a Progresso coupon I downloaded online. Have yet to try it. I have never heard of acini di pepe pasta, but the recipe says you can use 8 oz of any small round pasta. Also I don't know what mustard greens are or how to use them. The recipe mentioned that spinach, Swiss chard or other greens could be used instead.”
