I just harvested my beets and this recipe was so handy for using up some of the beetleaf greens. I really enjoyed this recipe. The only change I made was to add 2 pre-cooked organic chicken sausages, sliced, along with the garlic (DH likes some meat at dinner). I also seasoned it with crushed red pepper flakes. Definitely don't skimp on the garlic - the 4 sliced cloves add a lot of flavor. I used a chunky tomato sauce and the combination of the tomatoes with the greens was lovely and looked very appetizing.
