Pasta With Chard And Potatoes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


Potatoes with pasta are not as strange as you might think, especially since thoroughly cooked potatoes provide creaminess without fat.

1/2 lb. potatoes, washed
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bunch Chard, cleaned and cut into 1/2-inch strips
Sea salt to taste
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
14 ounces short pasta such as penne, cooked and drained with 1/3 cup of water reserved
6 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


Cut potatoes into very thin slices. Put into saucepan fitted with a steamer basket and about 3/4 inch water. Cover and steam over medium heat until very tender, about 20 minutes.

Put 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a wok over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook 11/2 to 2 minutes, just until it begins to turn a very light golden colour. Add chard and cook, tossing a few times until just wilted, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes, salt, pepper and thyme and toss again. Add pasta, remaining oil and just enough cooking water until mixture has a light coating but isn't soupy. Add Parmesan, toss and serve. Serves 4.
