Pasta with Swiss Chard and Shrimp
Sunday, June 6, 2010
Sometimes, when I channel surf, I run into the Duggars. The family on TLC with a zillion children. Once, I saw them go shopping. Damn. That was crazy.
Me? I'm the person at the meat counter saying:
I would like to buy one sausage link, please.
For this recipe, I bought 5 shrimp (shell-on) at the counter. They were on sale so it was $.50 worth of protein! Yes, 50-cents. Well, since they were previously frozen, I couldn't refreeze them so I just got enough for dinner. Me and my 5 shrimp.
I boiled some whole wheat pasta. Chopped half a head of red Swiss chard from the farmer's market. Sauteed in some garlic and olive oil. Then I tossed in the five shrimp and cooked for a few seconds before adding in the pasta. The Swiss chard dyed the pasta...that is why you see a pink tint. I finished it off with some salt, pepper and parm cheese. Dinner for one!
