1 Tbsp
virgin olive oil
medium onion, finely chopped
cloves garlic, minced
1 lb
shiitake mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1/2 lb
crimini mushrooms or other sliced mushrooms for variety (or use all shiitake)
1 large
can whole tomatoes, roughly chopped, with juice
bunch swiss chard, tough stems removed, roughly chopped
1-2 sprig(s)
fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
1/4-1/2 tsp
dried chili flakes
ounces shredded gruyere cheese
2 oz
shredded parmesan cheese for garnish
1 lb
pasta of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

In a medium sized skillet, heat olive oil until shimmering. Add onion and cook at medium-low heat until translucent, about 5 or 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until golden brown, about 1 minute.

Add mushrooms and increase heat slightly. Cook until the mushrooms have thrown off their moisture and started to brown.
Add tomatoes, chili flakes and oregano and cook until heated through. Add Swiss chard and cook until wilted, just a couple of minutes. Stir in gruyere cheese.

Meanwhile, cook whatever pasta shape you desire, until al dente. Drain pasta and top with sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
