Tasty meal! I made this on a whim because we just happened to have all of the ingredients. I thought the dish had a lot of flavor and texture. I cooked the bacon in the oven because I wanted to omit some of the grease. Besides that, I followed the recipe and it was delicious!
I have made this one MANY times! I use any kind of greens I have kale, collards, spinach and usually more bacon!
The flavors of this were different, and yummy! I omitted the olive oil (bacon has enough grease...I actually removed most of the grease before adding the chard, and it was still plenty to wilt it). My husband thought it was good without the ricotta (not a huge fan of it), so it's good either way! The sauce is a little runny, but I used a slotted spoon to serve it and it was ok. I'm always looking for ways to use chard, and this will be made again!
We really enjoyed this unusual dish. It's quick to prepare and tasted great. I've never used swiss chard before but we really liked it. I used turkey bacon and low fat ricotta to keep the calories and saturated fat in check. Next time I'll use just a half cup of broth to keep the finished sauce from being runny.
