 400 g of fresh cockles
 150 ml of extra virgin olive oil
 800 g of chard
 4 cloves of garlic
 1 handful of fresh basil leaves
1

Before starting with the recipe, to prevent the basil leaves from oxidizing, blanch them in boiling water for 1 minute, drain the water, and then dry the leaves with kitchen paper. Crush the basil well with the olive oil: we have our basil oil.

2

At the same time, boil water in a pot and add the pasta with a little salt and a thread of olive oil. Cook them as long as they come out in the package.

3

Wash and cut the chard, including the stems, into pieces about 2 cm thick.

4

Cut the garlic into slices and brown them in a frying pan with a little olive oil. Add the chard and cover. Lower the heat and let them cook with their own steam for a few minutes. Add the cooked pasta and mix.

5

In another pot, steam the cockles until they are all open. Remove from heat and strain to remove all impurities.

6

Add the cockles to the pasta together with the basil oil.
