|Yield:||4 to 6 servings|
|2 tbsp.||olive oil|

- In large deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and leek and cook, stirring occasionally, until leek is softened, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in tomatoes, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, bring large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and Swiss chard, stirring to prevent sticking. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pasta is just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.
- Stir pasta and chard into tomato mixture; season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors have blended, about 3 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste and serve hot.
