Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 onions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 bunches Swiss chard (trimmed and chopped (about 14 cups))
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes with juices
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives (coarsely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Pecorino cheese
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the chard and saute until it wilts, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes with their juices, wine, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down and the chard is very tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Season the chard mixture, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring frequently, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the spaghetti. Add the spaghetti to the chard mixture and toss to combine.
  3. Transfer the pasta to serving bowls. Sprinkle the olives, cheese, and pine nuts and serve.
