Mashed Peas & Chard Lemon Pasta
1 large bunch of chard
Fresh peas (measure beforehand for veggie grams)
Penne Pasta (measure after cooked)
Zest one lemon. Chop chard (leaves should be larger than stems) and sauté with a little olive oil. Add lemon zest at the last minute. In the meantime boil pasta and peas. Remove peas after a minute or two and drain almost all water (leaving half a cup). Mash coarsely. Drain pasta and serve on plate. Add mashed peas and chard.
