Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook for 1 minute to soften. Add the Swiss chard. Cook and stir until the stems of the chard are tender. You can use some of the hot pasta water to help steam the chard in the covered pan.
  3. Stir the hot spaghetti into the chard mixture along with the capers. Season to taste with salt and black pepper, and drizzle with lemon juice if desired. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

I've had pasta and Swiss chard before, but until now have only mixed it together on my plate, not as a dish of its own! This is pleasant, homey comfort food. Simple and satisfying. I had the capers out and ready to go but forgot to add them. Enjoyed this just the same.

This is great with basically kind of greens! I like to mix spinach at the last minute just to wilt it with the sturdier other greens. Even my three uear old g'daughter loves it!

Really simple and delicious. I have a lot of chard in the backyard and I wish I had used two bunches! Added a few more garlic cloves. Loved the lemon- not overpowering like I thought it would.
