Soups, spaghetti, side dishes, stew, smoothies, and skillets. Just a few of the many recipes using fresh chard, spinach, or greens from the garden. I can chardly wait for another dish containing chard, can you? Needing a quick dinner as chicken hatching day was upon, this quick and easy 20 Minute Lemon Broccoli Pasta was the dish of champions. In the time it took the pasta to cook, the dish was done. Bam.
To the salty boiling pasta, the finely cut chard was added instead of the broccoli. Broccoli was cooked in the microwave instead. Parmesan cheese was not added into the pasta but was just served on top along with extra fresh ground pepper.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Not to pat myself on the back or anything but I have to say the usage of tri-colored pasta instead of plain white pasta made all the difference in appearance. Having already made and loved Eat Your Greens, I figured a little splash of color would be great. If sun dried tomatoes had been on hand, they would have been added instead or alongside and that would have been fabulous. Sun dried tomatoes, lemon, garlic, red pepper. What was there to go wrong.
Served hot today, this dish would have been excellent served hot, cold, or room temperature. Add a few bites of bacon and bam the next level achieved. Sadly, there were no leftovers for lunch. Guess I will just have to make this again. Soon.
