Mix together tomatoes, spices and olive oil in a pot, on medium heat. When the tomatoes are bubbling slightly, add in the minced garlic and stir. Cook for at least 10 minutes, then add in chopped swiss chard. Stir well and cover. Cook for about 10-20 minutes (or longer). Meanwhile, boil water and cook noodles. Drain and rinse with hot water.
** In retrospect, I wish I had made the sauce with onions and red pepper flakes as usual. I also wish I had added in some wine or vinegar. Alas.**
When the sauce is ready, stir in the egg noodles and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving. Top with parmigiana or other delicious cheese.
