Simple & Yummy

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
  • S&P

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!!!

Change this up easily by substituting different Veggies you have on hand or adding fresh Herbs! REMEMBER: USE WHATCH GOT!!!!
