I could never give up carbs. Because life without pasta would not be worth living. When I get home and have no plans for dinner, I can usually look in the fridge and pantry and come up with a delicious pasta dish. It's comforting, and there are so many variations, it never bores me.
For this dish, I used some leftover chard, from a whole week of chard dishes, and yellow squash. After sauteeing the stems and squash, I added the chard greens, tomato sauce, garlic, olives and basil. Simple and fast. Oh, and cheese. It's nice to always have a chunk of Parmesan in the fridge. You just never know.
This dish was hearty and made for great leftovers the next day. That's another plus for pasta. You can forget it in your fridge, find it days later, and it's still delicious.
