Swiss Chard........Pasta

I've never grown swiss chard and recently discovered how good it is and the nutrients are plentiful.

I picked and washed the chard and prepared this yummy pasta dish.

Olive oil
garlic chopped or minced (use amount you like)
1 red onion chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes
kosher salt and flaked red pepper
Saute all of these together for a few minutes until tomatoes just start to soften or pop
Chop the chard into 2 inch pieces and add to saute until wilted

Meanwhile boil pasta of your choice (I used De Boles all natural linquine made with jerusalem artichoke flour)

Mix the saute with the pasta and serve in pasta bowl, top with sliced kalamata olives, feta cheese and maybe some italian cheese.
