Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Swiss Chard

I made this recipe from I figure it counts since it contains Greens as a major ingredient. I only used one head of Swiss Chard (since that was all I had) and omitted the olives, since, well, I HATE olives.

I really liked it, as did the Hubs. I think the pine nuts and parmesan are really important to the finished dish. The kids weren't the biggest fans. Swiss Chard has a slightly bitter and almost anise-like taste and it didn't suit their palate. I ended up serving them plain pasta with some olive oil and parmesan cheese.

I'll make this again. It tasted light and different from the ultra-tomato pasta dishes that I make often.
