I know I sound repetitive at this point, but I seriously love having a garden and one that provides so much veg! Especially the zucchini, I am drowning in it! I basically have Zoodles everyday! Not complaining!The one we found yesterday morning was HUMONGOUS!!! I weighed it...3.1 lbs!!! It's almost as big as Fifi!!!
Stay tuned, because we are beginning our Fall garden plans!
Back to the chard:We have been enjoying swiss chard all summer from veggie wraps, salads, and I want to share with you this pasta recipe we have been enjoying.
I love spinach pesto, and I thought "Why not swiss chard?" Toss it with some pasta, cherry tomatoes, and some turkey kielbasa! Perfect summer pasta right there.
For the pesto:
1 cup of chopped Swiss Chard
3 tbs chopped basil leaves
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
¼ cup of walnuts
Juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lemon
3 tbs parmesan
1 box of your favorite pasta
Turkey Kielbasa ( I used Jennieos )
15 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
In a food processor, combine all the pesto ingredients and pulse until thoroughly blended
Prepare pasta according to box instructions
Saute turkey kielbasa in skillet for 5-6 minutes
Top with more parmesan!
Toss pasta with pesto, kielbasa, and cherry tomatoes and serve!
