  • Summary

    Pine nuts, which are harvested from pinecones, can be used in both savory and sweet dishes. Store them in the refrigerator for up to three months; freeze them for up to nine. Swiss Chard, a member of the beet family, comes in several varieties, which can be used interchangeably. Look for chard with bright-green leaves and no brown spots.

    Ingredients

    • 1/3 cup pine nuts
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3/4 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
    • 1 pound Swiss chard, tough stems removed, leaves cut into thin strips
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 pound gemelli, or other short pasta
    • 3/4 cup raisins, plumped in boiling water and drained
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
