“This so delicious recipe is from Kelsey Nixon from the Cooking Channel. I had never cooked or eaten mustard greens before, but the demonstration looked so interesting and delicious that I had to try it. DH and I were very glad that I did. Healthy, but DH liked it . The pancetta adds a delicious smokey taste. Easy, did I say easy???”
