Cookin’ Greens with Linguine, Garlic & Pine Nuts

Toasted pine nuts are creamy, nutty and offer lots of crunch. They are gentle in flavour and a great addition to this linguine recipe. Further, with the addition of Cookin’ Greens, carrots and sun dried tomatoes, this recipe is flavourful and much more colourful then your traditional linguine.
