Penne with Swiss Chard

Posted by tinako on November 8, 2012

Penne with Swiss Chard, Turban Squash, Edamame, and Salad

For dinner we had Penne with Swiss Chard, Turban Squash, Edamame, and Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing.

My cold frame isn’t growing things very speedily.  Seeds I planted at the end of August germinated quickly but then stopped and are mostly only an inch or two high.  An exception is the pea plants, which are big but never flowered and obviously aren’t going to now.  But I discovered that the leaves are pretty good, so I’ve been putting them in salads.  They taste kind of like alfalfa sprouts.  The Swiss Chard I transplanted into the frame in August from my better garden is hanging on but didn’t grow much this fall.  But that’s the chard we ate tonight.  The yellow and red tomatoes from my garden are slowly ripening in the basement, been down there about a month now.
