    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.

      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.
