Chop Swiss chard, reserving stems and leaves separately.
3

Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large skillet set over medium-heat. Add onion and Swiss chard stems, sauté until golden. Stir in leaves.

Add hot cooked spaghetti, artichoke hearts and pesto to skillet; toss, adding cooking liquid as needed, just until warmed through. Spoon into bowls and garnish with pumpkin seeds and feta (if using).

 

Wholesome greens and pasta tossed with a flavourful (almost oil-free!) pesto and toasted pumpkin seeds make a delicious and nutritious entrée.
 

TipsReplace the Swiss chard with chopped fresh kale or rapini.
 Replace the pumpkin seeds with toasted walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts.
