    This is not a traditional lasagna, but it's good! The sweetness of the onions is offset by the chard.

      This lasagna is very very good, but I will never make it again because it took 3.5 hours from the first onion sliced until it was on our plates ready to eat... and that was with two of us cutting things up and doing other prep- AND I used a mandolin to slice the onions - it would have taken us 4 hours if I had done them all by hand. I was exhausted after making this!!! We added a spare red bell pepper and a small summer squash (both sauteed) to the onions.

      I loved this lasagna. It was delicious and very original. And I didn't find the prep time too bad. Each step is simple; it's just all the different pans you need to get going. I would, however, recommend, increasing the recipe for the chard/ricotta mixture by about half. I made this in a 9x9 pan, and I think it would've been too little for a 9x13 pan.

      I liked the flavor of this lasagna (my husband, who doesn't like chard, even liked it), but it took a VERY long time to make, so it would not be my first choice to make again for that reason. I made some modifications to suit ingredients I had on hand (added some mozerella cheese, used less onion), but basically, I made as written.
