      2 cups cooked penne pasta
      1/2 cup roasted red peppers cut in strips.
      1/2 cup feta cheese
      1 tbs olive oil
      1 tbs butter
      1 tsp balsamic vinegar
      1/2 tsp salt in the water for boiling the pasta
      Boil the pasta in salted water as directed on the package, about 11 min.When the pasta is done, drain and place in the serving bowl.
      While the pasta is cooking, wash the swiss chard or spinach (or combination of the two), removing any long stems.
      Spin them in a salad spinner to remove the excess water or pat them dry.
      Heat a tbs of olive oil in a frying pan.
      Toss the swiss chard or spinach into the frying pan and swiftly stir it in the oil just until the greens are wilted, about 30 to 60 sec. Add a tsp of balsamic vinegar and stir, then remove from heat.
      Add the spinach or swiss chard to the pasta.
      Add the crumbled feta cheese.
      Toss gently together and serve. Serves 6
