Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Red Swiss Chard Pasta
Serves 2 to 4
1 bunch Red Swiss
1/2 lb fusilli
2 veggie sausage, cut into 1/8 inch
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Nutritional yeast for garnish
- Wash the chard, cut off the stems and
chop crosswise into 1/4 inch pieces, coarsely chop the leaves.
Heat the pot until hot, add 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and the veggie
sausage, cook over medium heat covered so the oil doesn’t splatter
all over until brown on both sides.
- Remove from pot and set
aside. (I use a wok but you can use a heavy pot and cook everything
in progression so it’s just a one pot mess to clean up).
- Add 1
1/2 teaspoon oil to pot. Add chard stems and cook for 3 minutes over
medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add a little bit of water if it
- Add the chard leaves, water and red pepper flakes
and turn down to low heat, covered for 5 minutes until the stems are
tender. Drain and remove chard to a mixing bowl.
- Cook the pasta
in the same pot according to the package directions. Drain the pasta
and add to the bowl with the chard.
- Toss with 1 tablespoon oil
and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or to taste. Add the veggie
sausage and toss well. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast.
