    Lightbulb Ziti with Swiss Chard

    Ziti with Swiss Chard
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1 can anchovy fillets
    3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    pinch crushed red pepper flakes
    1 lb swiss chard coarsely chopped (frozen is good, too)

    salt, to taste
    1 lb pkg ziti
    Combine the olive oil, anchovies and their oil, garlic, and pepper flakes in a large, broad skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until the anchovies disintegrate and the garlic is soft, 3-4 minutes. Set aside. Bring 5 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add the Swiss chard, 1 1/2 tbs of salt, and the ziti. Cook, stirring occasionally, to prevent the pasta from sticking together. When the pasta is al dente, drain everything, reserving about 1/3 cup of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta and Swiss chard to the skillet with the anchovy, oil, and garlic mixture. Toss everything together with a wooden spoon, making sure the sauce ingredients are evely distributed throughout the pasta. If the pasta sauce needs additional moisture, stir in a little of the reserved cooking water before serving. 4 servings = about 695 calories.
