This was a really hearty and tasty recipe. I made three slight changes that worked really well.1. Unfortunately, my cilantro had expired, so I used more parsley and added about 1/2 tsp of ground coriander. 2. Could not find any non-wheat pasta at the store that was the right shape for this recipe, so served it over quinoa instead. Super good variation.3. These recipes always taste very "dark" to me, and in need of acidity. I added my favorite, seasoned rice vinegar, about a tablespoon at a time until it had just the right balance for me. This was my first time to try swiss chard. I will definitely make this recipe again, and perhaps try to get closer to the original!
