Simple Swiss Chard Pasta

Simple Swiss Chard Pasta


  • 6 ounces pasta
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch chard, stems diced, leaves coarsely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup canned fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup cooked white beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup Shaved pecorino or parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup pine nuts (optional)
  • Sea salt & fresh black pepper


  • In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente.
    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chard stems and a pinch of salt. Give them a stir, then add the chard leaves and gently toss until they begin to wilt.
  • Once the chard is cooked down, add pasta and remove from heat. Serve with shaved pecorino or parmesan cheese and pine nuts on top.
