Weeknight dinners can be such a challenge! Finding fast recipes are a must during busy weeks. Here are two quick recipes that used up some leftovers and were delicious!
|Pasta with Swiss chard, onion and sausage|
Boil some short pasta (penne, bowtie, rotini, etc.), drain and set aside. Cook a few sausages and slice. I used 3 Italian sausage - cook and set aside. Slice and sautee half an onion. When onion is about translucent, add sausage back in and pasta. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of EVOO in the pan with a touch of black pepper. Take a leafy green like Swiss chard, spinach or even broccoli rab, roughly chop and add to pan. Constantly stir until greens are wilted. The beauty (and ease) of this dish is you don't really need spices because sausage has such flavors that come out in the cooking. Top with a little grated Parmesan cheese.
