pasta recipe from Giada De Laurentiis. It was so easy to make and the flavors worked together beautifully. I loved the bitterness of the chard combined with the sweet onions and tomatoes, the brininess of the Kalamata olives, the crunch of the pine nuts, and the sharpness of the Romano cheese - perfect! The recipe calls for whole wheat spaghetti but I had fresh linguine on hand. I used only one large bunch of Swiss chard and one large onion but otherwise followed the recipe. I am hoping for Swiss chard in my CSA box again this week and I will happily eat another plate of this delicious pasta! This pasta is also super healthy and only contains one tablespoon of olive oil.
Every so often I stop by Casa Di Trevi in Roselle Park, NJ to pick up some fresh pasta. You can easily pass this place by since it is in a warehouse on the side of a busy four-lane highway. They are mainly a wholesaler that sells pasta to restaurants and specialty stores but there is a small retail store. I have tried their fresh cut pastas and homemade ravioli - delicious! Their fresh linguine was perfect with the Swiss chard recipe.
