Mashed Peas & Chard Lemon Pasta

INGREDIENTS

1 large bunch of chard
EVOO
Lemon zest
Fresh peas (measure beforehand for veggie grams)
Penne Pasta (measure after cooked)

PREPARATION

Zest one lemon. Chop chard (leaves should be larger than stems) and sauté with a little olive oil. Add lemon zest at the last minute. In the meantime boil pasta and peas. Remove peas after a minute or two and drain almost all water (leaving half a cup). Mash coarsely. Drain pasta and serve on plate. Add mashed peas and chard.

    Yum this looks delicious. I want to try it this weekend maybe! I think I have a similar lifestyle - active but I love food and drink!


      This will help a lot for making the recipe, it would be even better if you can make a video on how to make it.


        What would be a good substitute for chard? Not so readily available where I am but I'm living the simplicity of this recipe.

          Hi Kamalika, spinach might be a good alternative instead of chard. Give it a try! Yum :)

            I would add bashes garlic with the chard and maybe some Chili! Otherwise this sounds grand can’t
            Wait to try it
