It only takes a few ingredients and 30 minutes to whip up this tasty and filling pork and shiitake mushroom pasta meal!


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Cook the gemelli according to package directions. Drain and reserve.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add half of the oil. Sauté the onions until starting to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Add the shiitakes. Continue to cook until the mushrooms begin to brown and the onions become more caramelized, another 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and mustard greens. Cook for about 1 minute so that the garlic is aromatic and the greens have wilted.
  3. Turn up the heat to medium-high. Move the vegetables to one side of the pan. Add the remaining oil and cook the pork briefly just to cook through and get some browning, about 2 minutes. Toss everything together, including the pasta.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide between 4 bowls.

*Tip: Use gluten-free gemelli to make this dish gluten-free.
