This is an excellent hearty dish on a cold winter evening.  Since it’s pasta, it makes a lot, which is great for leftovers.  The red chard contributes a vegetable to the dish and the walnuts add protein and fiber.

Sauteed Rainbow Chard with Dried Cranberries

This is a great side dish for any fall/winter night dinner.  It’s also a great, easy side dish to add some greens for a holiday dinner, be it Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s.  The deep green of the chard leaves with the dried cranberries offer a festive look.  The tiny, sweet, tangy jewel-like cranberries stud the deep, velvety green chard leaves.  If you are making it for a holiday dinner, you could make the dish a day ahead and reheat it gently on the stove just before serving.
