    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil; add the chard and cook for 1 minute. Remove the chard from the saucepan with a slotted spoon; set chard aside. Bring water back to the boil; add pasta and cook according to the instructions on the packet. Drain, but reserve 3 or 4 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water.
    2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until golden. Stir in garlic, paprika and cayenne pepper; season with salt and pepper to taste.
    3. Add the creme fraiche and reserved pasta cooking water; stir well and let the sauce thicken for about 2 minutes. Add cooked pasta and chard; heat through and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
