1 Bunch Red Swiss chard, including stems, Chopped
1 Red Onion, chopped
3 T Olive Oil

Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces on the diagonal. Heat olive oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium heat and heat until butter is melted. Add garlic, onion and red pepper flakes, saute for 3-5 minutes until garlic is fragrant. Add asparagus pieces and saute for 5 minutes, add chopped swiss chard, saute 10 minutes or until chard is wilted and asparagus is soft but still crunchy. Salt and pepper to taste.
