Peasant Pasta with Swiss Chard and Tomatoes

Submitted by: CHRISSYLADY


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6c Whole Wheat Pasta
    1 14oz can Diced Tomatoes
    Swiss Chard, 1 medium bunch
    Olive oil, 3tbsp
    Garlic, 3 cloves chopped
    Salt to taste
    White wine, a splash

Directions

Makes 6 1-cup servings.

**note: have tongs or other utensil to fish cooked chard out of the water so you can boil the pasta in the same water. another note: save a little pasta water for the final dish....
Bring one large pot of water to boil, then add a couple of teaspoons of salt. Add chard pieces to the water and cook until blanched, 2 minutes or so. Fish out the chard with tongs or strainer. Add pasta to water to cook if using dried pasta...
Meantime, cook the garlic in the oil in a large saute pan for 1 minute over medium or medium high heat until softening a little, make sure it doesn't burn. Add blanched chard & chopped tomatoes. Cook for 5-7 minutes. Cook up the pasta now if you're using fresh pasta.
Now the fun part: toss everything together, with a splash of white wine or lemon juice, and add a little of the pasta water to make everything a tad soupy. Adjust seasoning (add S & P to taste) and EAT.
