Sassy Swiss Chard


(0 votes) 0 0

Swiss chard is something I grew up with but I think it is definitely an acquired taste. I think that the sauce and cheese will make it more palatable for you newbies. It can be a side dish or main dish if you add pasta. Spinach can be used instead of the Swiss chard if desired.

Clean and rinse chard and cut off end of stem. Slice leaf down the middle and cut in half.

Heat oil in skillet and sauté potatoes until golden. Add onion and sauté about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add chard, salt and peppers and cover. Steam down about 10 minutes, and using tongs, toss everything until coated with oil. Add tomato sauce, combine well and cover. Let simmer on low heat about 10 minutes, stirring every 3-4 minutes or so.

Sprinkle with grated cheese and serve with bread. If you want to add this to pasta to make a hearty meal, double the sauce and spices.
