    Stunningly good! The crispy edges on the chard really make this dish. I added a chopped up red bell pepper to the bottom layer and the flavors blended together nicely. I also used fat-free feta. I had to keep myself from eating the entire pan! Edited to add: I tried this again tonight, using kale instead of chard and goat cheese crumbles instead of feta. Gonna have to give it 5 stars as well. Served it on top of a lemony pasta. So good.  -  15 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy! Really mellows the swiss chard. We're eating it right from the pan. When adding your salt "to taste," don't forget that the feta is salty, too. Next time I might sprinkle some walnuts on top.  -  20 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've never had Swiss Chard before, so decided to try this. What a nice surprise! I substituted parmesan for feta because of my boys preference, added a splash of balsamic vinegar, and cut the olive oil in half. My 16 yr old son really like the leaves, but not the stems, and my 10 yr old son said "yeah, its okay". I loved it! Just waiting for my husband to try when he gets home from work.  -  10 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
