by | Aug 24, 2021 | CSA Member Updates, Recipes

Carolyn Kumpe of El Dorado, California shared this delicious main dish recipe on the Taste of Home website. It’s hearty and satisfying as a meatless main dish, but for the meat lovers in your family, consider serving it alongside grilled chicken or fish.
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6
8 ounces uncooked Rigatoni or large tube pasta
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 bunch Swiss chard, coarsely chopped
1 small Onion, thinly sliced
2 Garlic cloves, minced
3 medium Tomatoes, chopped
1 can (15 ounces) Cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon crushed Red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon Fennel seed, crushed
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
1/4 cup minced fresh Basil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Cook rigatoni according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add Swiss chard and onion; cook and stir 4 minutes. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes longer.
3. Stir in tomatoes, beans, salt, pepper flakes, fennel and pepper. Cook 3-4 minutes longer or until chard is tender.
4. Drain rigatoni, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water. Add rigatoni, pasta water and basil to skillet; toss to combine. Serve with the grated Parmesan cheese.
