  • Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces cubed smoked tofu
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 pound butternut squash, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes (3 cups)
  • 1 small bunch Swiss chard, stems removed, leaves cut into 1-inch pieces – I used a whole large bag of mixed dark leafy greens from Trader Joes
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat penne, rigatoni or fusilli
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese – I omitted this
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

    I make something similar to this but top with toasted walnuts. I swear it’s the secret ingredient to this dish!
