A delicious pasta dish with yummy swiss chard and caramelized onions; what's not to like? It's good alone or served with grilled chicken.


3 tablespoons Butter; or Olive oil
5 Anchovy Filets
2 Garlic cloves; finely chopped
2/3 cup Bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil; plus additional for drizzling
1 Yellow onion; halved from stem to root and thinly sliced crosswise
Kosher Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 pound Swiss chard; ribs removed, leaves chopped
1/2 pound Whole-wheat pasta; such as fusilli or penne

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1.) In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add 3 anchovies to the skillet; cook until melted, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in the bread crumbs and toast until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

2.) Wipe the skillet clean and return it to a medium-high heat. Add the oil, the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft and caramelized, 15 to 20 minutes. Chop the remaining 2 anchovies and add them to the skillet. Cook until melted. Add the Swiss chard, a handful at a time, and cook until wilted, about 4 minutes. Cover and keep warm.

3.) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain well. Toss with the chard mixture and bread crumbs, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil.
