Busy??? Too tired to “cook”??? Here is an idea that is simple, fast & filling. You can feed your kids and and you can still get your veggies in! All in one meal!!! This is delicious and so easy to make. I used a fun store bought pasta filled with Chicken & Bacon. (you can use anything you like or whatever you have on hand). For the kids, I just boiled the pasta, drained, added some EVOO and Parm, and done. Easy Peasy. Heaven Forbid they eat onions or chard. Maybe yours are less picky….
I wanted to get some veggies in mine so, all you need is:
- Red Onion (small or half of large cut in half moons)
- Swiss Chard (torn into bite size pieces)
- Garlic (2-3 cloves minced)
- Good Parm (microplane grater)
- 1 Knob GOOD Butter
While the pasta is boiling, sauté red onion in 2 T EVOO with a little S&P until soft…3-5 mins on Med High. Turn to Med Low and add Garlic. Sauté 1 Min until fragrant. Add torn bits of Chard and turn off heat. Mix. Will wilt on its own. Drain Pasta….keep a small amount of pasta water. Toss Pasta in Chard and Onion Mixture. Add 2 T Pasta Water, S&P, and knob of butter. Toss Gently. Done and Done! Plate up and Garnish with Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese. Bon Appetite!!!
