Swiss Chard from last years garden.
1 bunch of Swiss Chard - washed and drained.
Trim the leaves from the stems and roughly chop the leaves and pat them dry.
Then, in a large skillet saute 2 cloves of minced garlic in olive oil. I use a liberal amount of olive oil, but use what you'd like.
Boil water for linguine (or spaghetti) and cook a good amount al dente - then set it aside.
Next, sprinkle red-pepper flakes into the oil and garlic and saute for about 1 minute.
Add the chard and saute until it's wilted - then remove it from the heat.
Now, add the pasta. Toss with salt and pepper and then - the fun part - toss a handful of grated Parmesan.
Serve and watch the eyes begin to smile.
If you like you could serve some baked chicken pieces with this - I generally don't. Just a big plate of this along with my home made whole wheat bread.
