Tasty recipe. Enjoyed the unique combination of swiss chard with the linquine and mushrooms. And thoroughly enjoyed the caramelized onions and they were cooked perfectly after the 20 mins. Other than reducing the pasta, I didn't change the ingredients and it worked nicely. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

As someone who cooks often with spinach, it weas nice to try a recipe that encouraged me to "branch out" and try new kinds of greens... the swiss chard added a unique flavor that balanced well with the sweetness of the onions. Delicious! We will definitely make this again. (note that it takes longer to prepare than the "10 min prep" listed--more like 40 min to cook onions and mushrooms)
