Spaghetti with Green Chard and Chorizo

Spaghetti with Green Chard and Chorizo

I adapted this recipe from a magazine I was reading at my Acupuncture’s office.  It was about healthy eating, yada, yada.  Blah! I mean, don’t get me wrong —I’m all for healthy eating but the recipe was basically whole wheat pasta, pine nuts, lemon zest/juice, collard greens, garlic and Pecorino Romano cheese.  The recipe didn’t sound all that great to me but the picture sure looked fantastic.  So I decided to make it but I tailored it to my liking.  This one is a winner, will be making more of it soon.  Happy Friday!

Spaghetti with Sausage and Shallots

As I was cleaning out my fridge over the weekend, I thawed out a pound of sweet Italian sausages.  Last night as I was going over my pantry and fridge, I noticed I didn’t have much around the house.  I used basically what I had on hand to make dinner —spaghetti, shallots, parsley, parmesan cheese and wine.  This dish was tasty and quick.  It would be even better if I had some garlic.  Will have to add that in the next time I make this.  I love the whole wheat spaghetti in this dish.  I felt like I was eating something healthy. 🙂
