Spicy Mustard Greens, Shrimp and Andouille Jambalaya

By Marge Perry & David Bonom

Robustly flavorful Jambalaya is perfect when cooking for a crowd or making a Sunday supper with an eye on leftovers. Andouille sausage and mustard greens give this version a real kick – you can tone it down by using a milder kielbasa sausage and mellow collard in place of the mustard greens.
