Linguine with chard and egg
Happy birthday to me, by the way!
This takes five minutes to throw together and is a great way to use up a head of chard. The egg can be poached, fried, whatever. It's a bit of a carb fest, but it has green stuff in it, so it's healthy.
1 head chard
2 cloves garlic, minced
red pepper flakes
1 lb linguine, cooked
egg, poached or fried, 1 per serving
Saute the garlic and pepper flakes in the olive oil, just until the garlic gets fragrant; add the chard and cook until just wilted, maybe 2 minutes. Add the cooked and drained linguine (a little pasta water is okay). Toss with salt and pepper and parmesan. Top each serving with an egg and enjoy.
