Fettuccine with Swiss Chard, Garlic and Parmesan Cheese
This recipe serves: 6  
3/4 pound fettuccine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
pinch salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 pounds Swiss chard, washed
a pinch nutmeg
2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Cooking Instructions
1. Place a large pot of water on to boil. Add the fettuccine and cook about 12 minutes until al dente. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, cut the Swiss chard into 1/4-inch wide pieces.
