2.  Add garlic, and add onions, bell peppers, and the veggies at the top, stirring occasionally.    Do not add the swiss chard just yet.
3.  As the veggies become tender, and soft, add 1/2 of the swiss chard and stir it in.
4.  Add the cooked/drained pasta to the pan, and add the olive oil and 2 Tbsp butter, the rest of the swiss chard (including stems), and season it with salt and black pepper.
5.   Serve and enjoy.

You can add other veggies to this dish as well, and add in more seasonings  and herbs and flavors.      This was a simple dish and took me about 30-45 minutes to prepare.     Huge hit in my home, as my family was complimenting me and preferring this over the Chinese food that my kids wanted to have, that they ended up enjoying this instead.
