Really fast pasta #1

(Originally posted on Wednesday, January 21, 2004 by Cathy)

Some days in the grocery store, I think we're freaks. The people in front of us have cases of soda and frozen dinners and chips. The people behind us have cases of beer, frozen dinners, and chips. We've got the cashier trying desperately to identify Swiss chard, which is accompanied on the conveyer belt by bag after bag of other produce, a gallon of organic milk, two packs of tofu, and a couple other things she thought no one actually bought.

On that note, here's tonight's (very easy) dinner:

8 oz pasta
1 bunch chard, sliced, with tough stems removed
1 T olive oil
1 can cannellini beans
3 gloves garlic, pressed
salt and pepper
lemon juice

Start cooking the noodles.

Saute the chard in the oil for 2-3 minutes, then cover and let steam a few more minutes.

Combine beans, garlic, salt and pepper (to taste) in a bowl. Stir in the cooked noodles and chard. Squeeze on lemon juice. Spend more time taking the photo of dinner than cooking dinner.
