Swiss Chard with Golden Raisins & Almonds

The Saturday Scrounge

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday, is to rummage through the refrigerator and pantry and to try to come up with an elegant lunch that we can have with a bottle of wine. It feels very self indulgent. It’s amazing what I end up scrounging up.

This weekend, I was given a bountiful bag of vegetables picked that day from a farm. I decided to use the chard and stir it into fettuccini pasta for lunch. I top the whole thing with some freshly grated parmesan cheese.
