Recipe – Naked Silverbeet Pasta

Pasta with Silverbeat
This is a super easy and quick recipe.  My love with eating silverbeet started when I first
ate it in New Zealand. In other parts of the world it is called Swiss Chard.
It is packed with vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Calcium,
Iron and Magnesium.

Preparation time: 7 minutes
Silverbeet cooking time: Silverbeet steamed 8 minutes
Pasta cooking time: Depends on which pasta you use
Serves: Two people

Ingredients
4 bunches of silverbeet – remove the white stems then roughly chop
300g Rigatoni Pasta
A couple of tomatoes cut in quarters
1 jar of pasta sauce
A couple of tablespoons of nutritional yeast

Instructions
Cook the pasta then start steaming the silverbeet. This pasta takes longer to cook so
after a few minutes place the silverbeet into a pot and steam it for 8 minutes.
When the pasta is halfway through cooking palce the pasta sauce into a pot and heat up
After 8 minutes remove the silverbeet from the hot plate
When the pasta is cooked, drain the water then pour the pasta sauce in the pasta and stir
Plate up the pasta and with a pair of tongs stack the silverbeet onto of the pasta
Sprinkle some nutritional yeast on top of top of the silverbeet then
serve immediately
