10 oz uncooked linguini OR fettucini
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch swiss chard, washed and rinsed thoroughly and chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cups vegetable broth (1 cup if your eating the chard over brown rice)
15 oz can chick peas (optional)
handful cremini mushrooms, chopped (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions, until al dente and set aside.
While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large pot. Saute garlic and onion until translucent. You can also throw in the chopped mushrooms here, too, if you're using.
Once onions are cooked, add broth and chard. Cover and cook on medium until chard has wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
When chard is done, combine with the cooked pasta. Top with some parmesan or soy parmesan if you choose...tastes just as good with out the cheese...and eat up!
