Instructions
Breadcrumbs
  1. Break the bread up into small pieces. Place the pieces of bread, parmesan, sea salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse until the ingredients are the texture of coarse sand.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a small skillet. Add minced garlic and allow it to simmer for about 30 seconds, until it is very fragrant. Add the breadcrumbs to the pan and allow them to brown, stirring every 1-2 minutes, for about 5 minutes. Remove the breadcrumbs from the heat and set aside.
Fresh Tomato and Swiss Chard Pasta
  1. Heat olive oil in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and sautée for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, basil, sea salt, and sugar and stir to combine. Cover the pot with a lid, leaving only a small crack for steam to escape, and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Stir the chopped Swiss chard into the sauce and continue cooking it for about two minutes, until the Swiss chard has wilted. Place the lid on the sauce pan and remove it from the heat.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large pot of water over high heat until the water boils. Throw a small handful of salt into the water and add the pasta to the pot. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta and place it in the sauce pan with the tomato-Swiss chard sauce. Stir everything until the pasta is evenly coated with sauce. Spoon the pasta into a large serving bowl and top it with the breadcrumbs.
