    MC Baker's Note:

    I've been growing swiss chard lately, and it is abundant. I've been going through a bunch of recipes with it, and just love the stuff. This is a modification of my other swiss chard and salmon recipe, using canned salmon. if you're a vegetarian, by all means omit the salmon. It is still delicious. If you are a vegetarian this is a pretty cheap meal. It can of course be dressed up with fresh salmon for guests too.

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to boil. While chopping vegetables and opening cans.
    2. 2
      Saute garlic and oregano in oil over medium heat for about 1 minute until garlic is slightly cooked (but not browned), then add swiss chard and cook until wilted.
    3. 3
      When water comes to a boil, add salt and sprig from oregano along with the pasta and cook 2 minutes less than the package directions indicate for the pasta cooking time.
    4. 4
      Add the white wine to the swiss chard pan to deglaze it, scraping the bits in the bottom of the pan. Let the alcohol cook off for a few minutes then add tomatoes (with liquid) and salmon.
    5. 5
      Break up the salmon a bit in the sauce.
    6. 6
      When the pasta is 2 minutes from finished, remove the pasta from the water and finish cooking in the sauce. Serve immediately.

      This was a good recipe...if you can follow the instructions. They seem to bounce around a bit. I used kale and spinach in place of the chard and capellini pasta. I also drained my tomatoes, as the recipe didn't say either way. Next time I would leave a little more juice. Topped with parmesan romano cheese.
