    Chef-Boy-I-Be Illinois's Note:

    I have never tried Swiss Chard, but wanted to because of it's health benefits. I looked for a recipe and couldn't find one to my liking (most just called for sauteeing). Last night I made Cooking Diva's Tuscan Chicken in Lemon-Wine Sauce (Scaloppine Al Limone) Tuscan Chicken in Lemon-Wine Sauce (Scaloppine Al Limone) and she suggested serving it with a side of pasta. So, I thought, why not add the chard to the pasta, along with some canellini beans and combine that with the wonderful lemon-wine sauce from her chicken. Her chicken dish, by the way, is delicious! The result, we thought, was quite tasty!

      This was great! I actually made the Tuscan "chicken" (I used seitan, which turned out great) because I found this recipe - had some heirloom cannellini beans and Swiss chard I needed to use up. I decided the flavor needed a little more complexity, so I added some sauteed mushrooms and onions, which helped. All together, it was a fabulous meal, and my boyfriend is kind of in awe of me now. Thanks for coming up with this and posting it!!

      I seriously dithered about the number of stars for this one. It is very, very good. But it depends on making another dish first, to get the lemon-wine sauce for the pasta. If a from-scratch wine sauce were included in the recipe, it definitely would be a four-star. Also, after looking in 4 distinct stores I was unable to find Cavatappi pasta so made it with Fusilli Bucati Corti. I shall persevere in the search, though!
