Meanwhile, add salt to boiling water, about 2 tbs. (This is very important step to season your pasta while it cooks.)Add pasta and cook stirring occasionally to prevent sticking until al dente.
When pasta is ready, drain and add to the swiss chard. Add reserved pancetta, butter and the gorgonzola and toss to combine so cheese can melt and all the flavors blend. Season to taste with salt and pepper
