A great tasting Soup, and pretty easy to make, has great color, great with some crusty italian bread. I made my own chicken stock so calories was more. Enjoy :)

This is a great version of this soup that I have made many times. You can substitute spinach leaves (which I seem to have in the house more often than not) in place of the chard. I am thinking the *swiss cheese* mentioned in the ingredient list does not belong???

Delicious AND healthy! I made this today for lunch and really enjoyed it. I used some chard that I got from the local farmers market with orzo for the pasta. I couldn't resist throwing in a teaspoon of oregano while it was cooking (I like oregano). Very yummy, thanks Anna.
