Fettuccine with White Bean Sauce and Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is a beloved kitchen-garden vegetable in Italian cuisine. Combined with white beans and tomatoes, this stick-to-your-ribs dish will satisfy the heartiest of appetites.
“Marriage…is not merely sharing one’s fettuccine, but sharing the burden of finding the fettuccine restaurant in the first place.”
Remove and discard the stems and thicker mid-ribs from the Swiss chard leaves. Rinse the leaves well, then drain and coarsely chop them.
Cook the fettuccine in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in an extra-large saucepan or steep-sided stir-fry pan. Add the onions and garlic and sauté over medium-low heat until the onion is golden.
Add the wine and Swiss chard. Cover and cook just until the chard wilts down, stirring once or twice, about 3 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes, beans, and raisins. Cook just until everything is well heated through, another 4 to 5 minutes.
Combine the fettuccine with the Swiss chard mixture in a large serving bowl. Toss well, then season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss again. Serve, passing around Parmesan cheese for topping, if desired.
Variation: Use a package of green and white fettuccine for a particularly attractive effect. Or try using super-nourishing quinoa ribbons, available in natural foods stores.
