This is the first year we have grown Chard, so I have been a little unsure how to use it. I have eaten it several times but have never cooked it myself. I looked through all the recipes for Swiss Chard on this site and picked this one. I am sure glad I did. We love it and will be using it a lot from now on. It's simple, easy to remember and the best Chard I have ever eaten. I did add extra garlic, red pepper and I used bottled lemon juice. I was very tasty. Thanks so much for this great recipe.

Wow! I usually don't go too crazy about veggies....but this was so good! The first time I tried Swiss chard, my DH was not too keen about it (I didn't quite get it cooked enough). This recipe was the deciding factor....like or dislike?!?! Well, you sold him (and me, of course!!) The lemon really makes the dish shine through!! Kudos on a great find and thanks for passing it on!!

I bought one bunch for the two of us since we have never tasted swiss chard before. It was the perfect amount for our first time. Next time I make it I will use 2 bunches. The recipe is wonderful and my husband ate it and actually liked it. Thank you for a great recipe.

Delicious. However, I made it with kale. I do not like to make a recipe for the first time and alter it. But I do not like swiss chard. Sorry, I have tried. So when I read this recipe I knew kale would be substituted. This recipe is so good and fast, other than the kale the recipe was made as printed. The lemon makes it so good. Thank you hollyfrolly!

Very tasty, I really like the lemon flavor with the chard. I left out the garlic and red pepper flakes, and added some black pepper instead. Cooking time was pretty much right on, though I think I'll start the chopped up ribs a tiny bit earlier than the rest next time (was good as is, but I think I'd like them just a little softer)

Made this dish. My husband likes swiss chard. I find it too bitter. He loved this dish. I still don't like swiss chard.

Wow! Simple and delicious. I'm a chard virgin. This is my first attempt and we are hooked. So quick and easy. I did not add the lemons, but served with sliced lemons and shredded parmisiano on the side. I squeezed lemon on mine and it was perfect. Thank you. This will be made again.

I'm at the point of eating better, esp with vegetable! I've always seen Swiss Chard at the store and not sure how to prepare it. I saw this recipe and said "Why not?".<br/>It was easy to prepare and very yummy!<br/>This will be on my green rotation!!
