Pasta with Red Chard & Sausage for #Dinner

Did you miss me? Do you want to know where I was? Oh, I get it you did not miss me - did not even realize that we were on a min-break {BTW - do you remember that term from "Bridget Jones Diary" ;)}; come back tomorrow and I will tell you all about our fantastic little get-away ;)  But tonight, I share with you our Tuesday night dinner; it was easy, breezy {you know, lemon squeezy...:)} and quick - just something that fit the schedule for this first workday of the week...
