Gluten-Free Lemon Swiss Chard Pasta
"I created this recipe for my celebrity clients who are looking to stay slim while enjoying whole-grain pasta and healthy fats," says personal chef and celebrity nutritionist Amie Valpone, who blogs at The Healthy Apple.
1 cup gluten-free pasta (such as Heartland)
1 head Swiss chard, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup kalamata olives
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook Swiss chard in olive oil over medium heat until wilted, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a large serving bowl. Add cooked pasta, olives, cilantro, scallions, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, paprika, salt, and pepper, and gently toss to combine.
