Spaghetti with swiss chard and peas

This is a light and nutritious recipe that is perfect to enjoy any sunny evening. Swiss chard and mint I used in this recipe comes from my small back garden.

The beautiful red and yellow stalks of swiss chard added extra bite to my recipe, but you can use store bought swiss chard if you don’t grow them.
