Recipe: Pasta With Greens and Feta

Here's a recipe from a reader, SarahW, for a simple pasta dish using Swiss Chard (it's been a hot topic of discussion on the Open Threads for a while) and Feta cheese. With greens such as spinach about to come into season on the East Coast, this would make a great spring dish. Pasta With Greens and Feta 6 Tbsp. olive oil (or less) 4 cups chopped onion 8 cups packed chopped bitter greens (e.g., swiss chard, or swiss chard plus other greens like spinach or escarole) 3/4 to 1 lb penne or other short substantial pasta 1/2 to 3/4 lb crumbled feta cheese salt and pepper Cook onions about 10 minutes over medium heat. Start pasta water. Add chopped greens to pan and cook 10-15 minutes. Cook pasta al dente. Just as pasta is close to done, add feta to greens mixture (over low heat). Add pasta to greens mixture, mixture thoroughly while heating for a few minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. (Thanks, SarahW!)
