    Liza at's Note:

    I'm always looking for different lasagnas...a break from the red sauce ones. This is from October 2008 Martha Stewart mag and it is really, really delish. This, of cours, has my tweaks in it...more cheese, light milk, etc. They show it in individual baking dishes, but I like to make it in one 9x13 pan...seems a little less precious and perfect and then people can easily go back for seconds!

      I have made this twice now. My Swiss Chard went crazy and I needed to find something different to make. Can only eat and make so many Chard Rolls. I tried this one, I used mozza instead of fontina, and used 16 cups of chopped chard instead of 3 bunches, don't know how much 3 bunches is. The second batch I froze in 3 (5x9) foil pans and put into the freezer. I re-heated them from frozen at 400 F for 1 hr 15 minutes. Even my hubby who really doesn't like veggies liked this one, he even requested it.
