Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the fettuccine

  • Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil.
Stir in the fettuccine and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the fettuccine, reserving 1 cup [2 cups] pasta cooking water. Return the fettuccine to the pot; drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and toss to keep the noodles from sticking.
While the water heats and the fettuccine cooks, prepare the sauce.

2

Make the sauce

  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the pork, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook without stirring until the pork is lightly browned on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the pork, add the chard, paprika, and reserved pasta cooking water, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to break the pork into pieces. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the pork is warmed through and the chard is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the fettuccine, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fettuccine and sauce to individual bowls. Garnish with the Parmesan, parsley, and as many chile flakes as you like and serve.
