Spaghetti With Chard

Spaghetti With Chard

Pasta is a great delivery system for health-building greens. This works with other greens like collards, spinach, or baby kale. If the final dish seems too dry just add a little extra olive oil… and of course, some extra Parmesan for sprinkling. Greens are a good source of calcium and can protect against many diseases. - Jenny Jones
