We have a number of vegetarian pasta recipes that make a healthful one-dish meal, and this is one of our favorites. We’re big fans of Swiss chard, but feel free to save time by substituting fresh baby spinach or kale, which come in 4 to 6-ounce packages that are pre-washed and ready to use.
If you want this dish to have a heavier concentration of veggies, cook 8 ounces (about 2 cups) of penne pasta. It will make enough for about 6 (2-cup) servings. If you want to stretch it out and make more, cook an entire 16-ounce package (about 4 cups). We’ve done it both ways and it’s always delicious!
