A simple to make and tasty Swiss Chard dish. You can also use other greens such as fresh spinach, beet tops. This recipe was on the swiss chard I purchased. It was written on the back of the tag for Consalo growers but, based on some reviews, I am making some changes.

This is a good, fast dish suitable for weeknights. I used whole-wheat bow-tie pasta. I wouldn't make any other changes. It was delicious.

We also didn't have luck with it. The taste was good- but it was gloppy-- not creamy or smooth. I kept reminding my husband of the low fat content, and he said that made up for the fact of the texture. It was like heated up left-over fettucini alfredo that had the fat break due to excess-prolonged heat.

I thought this was really good. I doubled the amount of sour cream & parmesan cheese so that there was more sauce. I also added some red chili flakes. I'll definitely be making this again!
