Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, washed, tough ends removed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 8 ounces whole grain pasta

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for cooking pasta.

  4. Boil pasta until just cooked through, according to package directions. Drain and toss cooked pasta with remaining olive oil. Serve greens over pasta and garnish with slivers of Parmesan.
