How to Make Shiitake Mushrooms and Chard Pasta


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
