1/2 med. RED ONION, thin slice, (1 cup)

2 CLOVES GARLIC, fine chop

1/2 lb. fresh FETTUCINE

Grated PARMESAN

Make the brown butter, keep warm on very low heat. Set pot of water to boil. Plump fruits in small bowl covered w/ 1/3c hot water. Stack & slice chard leaves crosswise to make 2” wide ribbons. Heat oil in big sauté pan; add onion, 1/4t salt, pinch pepper. Sauté on med 5min, til onion softens, begins to release juices. Add garlic, chard, 1/4t salt. Sauté 4-5min, til chard just barely tender, set heat to low. When water boils, add 1t salt, fettuccine, try to time it to finish w/ chard. (Chard should be very tender - not overcooked when pasta is done.) When pasta just tender, drain immediately, shake off excess water, add to onions & chard, w/ fruits, nuts, brown butter. Toss, s&p to taste. Serve w/ Parm.

BROWN BUTTER   Makes about 3/4c

Melt 1/2 lb unsalted BUTTER in sm. saucepan on low. As butter gently simmers, butterfat & milk solids will separate. Solids settle to bottom, coloring butter as it cooks. When it turns rich amber, 8-10min, remove from heat. Line a fine-mesh strainer w/ paper towel or cheesecloth, & pour butter thru, straining out solids. Use now, or cool, seal, chill for later.
