Pasta with Chard and White Beans

Here is another quick pasta recipe. Almost any winter green would work here as well.

Pasta with Chard and White Bean
bunch Chard
1 Can white beans, drained
1 - 3 garlic cloves, sliced or diced
1/2 lb pasta
Salt and pepper
red pepper flakes

Remove the stems from the chard. You can pull the leaves off or use a knife to cut out the stems.

Blanch the chard in the pasta water for a minute, then drain. You can then cook the pasta in the same water. Reserve about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

Saute the garlic in a touch of oil and add the beans, season with salt and pepper

Add the chard and a touch of the water. Cook until warm and add the cooked pasta. Add more liquid to keep from drying out.

Serve with Parm and red pepper flakes to taste.
