      I did not make this but am wondering how the Nutrition Facts came up with 41% fat. Seems too high considering the ingredients. Only significant source of fat is the olive oil and with 2 bunches of chard, tomatoes, 2 cans beans, it is somewhat diluted in %fat. Appears to be a very healthy recipe
