From Food Network's Big Daddy's House with Aaron McCarty(winner of The Next Food Network Star), this is yummy and pairs well with Lemon Pepper Orzo and Blackened Salmon with Blue Cheese Sauce.

This was my first experience with Swiss Chard. Your recipe was great, but I was taking it to a potluck so I made it a bit more colorful and substantial by adding red, yellow, and orange sweet peppers, a big Vidalia onion, and some extra garlic along with some Italian seasoning and an extra pinch of the crushed red pepper. Fabulous! I posted a photo.
