    Hey Jude's Note:

    A steamy bowl of this on a cold, rainy day is SO comforting. I serve this with crusty bread and a simple salad.

      Wow, made this tonight and it's SO good. The flavors really complement each other well. I had ingredients for another bean and chard soup recipe but it didn't seem very appetizing, so I searched and found this one. I didn't have any pasta, and I used a tablespoon or two of real bacon bits instead of bacon (which made it less fatty but still delicious). Note: don't forget the nutmeg! It really goes well with the chard and beans. Like another commenter, I used an immersion blender and blended it about 30% before adding the chard, and I added a little Parmesan as a garnish instead of olive oil.

      I loved this! At first I thought I had too much chard, but it wilted away and everything was in perfect proportion. I used red chard, and loved the color contrast. Delicious on the first cool night of the season. Made for Zaar Stars. Thanks for sharing!

      I was looking for a change from my usual chicken soup and I had some chard, so this soup really fit the bill and it was delicious!! My DH said it was a "winner". I used small white beans and orzo pasta plus I doubled the crushed red pepper. I also threw in some cooked chicken. Fabulous! Definitely going into my cookbook!
