Swiss Chard (or Kale) Feta Pasta

So far EVERY week we have recieved Swiss Chard in our CSA share.  I try to do a different recipe with it each week.  This was a family favorite.  The original recipe called for spinach, but I think Swiss Chard or Kale would/does work great!

Spinach and Feta Pasta      Recipe by Our Best Bites

Box of pasta

1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes

3 c. fresh spinach ( I used one large bunch of Swiss Chard)

1 onion, finely chopped

5-6 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

A handful of fresh mushrooms, chopped

4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

Salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add pasta. Cook according to package directions. In the meantime, heat a little olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until tender. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Add tomatoes, heat through, and then add drained pasta and crumbled feta. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat through and serve; you can crumble a little extra feta on top if you feel the urge.


  1. Looks yummy....swiss chard covered with feta might make me actually eat swiss chard!

  2. Yummy! Sounds great! We get kale or swiss chard every week too!
