    I love swiss chard and tomato and I have plenty of both in my garden this year. This is easy, delicious, the ideal way to use them and chockfull of nutrients too.

    This was very good! <br/>I work as a chef at a soup kitchen, so we get a lot of donated produce that I don't alway know what to do with. This recipe was easy and quick to throw together. I did not add the breadcrumbs, but I added a dash of balsamic vinegar, which worked really well with the dish.

    I have made this many times. Hands down the tastiest way to eat swiss chard. I make this for everyday without the breadcrumbs, and it is still very good. With the breadcrumbs it is exceptional - I served it at Thanksgiving this year and there were no leftovers. I usually add a squeeze of lemon and some grated parmesan cheese.

    Absolute winner! YUM. I too left some of the ribs in for texture. The breadcrumbs are really the finishing touch- it wouldn't be the same without them.They adds to the depth of the flavor and texture combination.I'll save on calories elsewhere. Great Tuscan side to serve with meats. Made with olive oil, it also works well for my vegan daughter.

    We loved this. We have tons of chard growing in our garden this year and this was so simple, easy, and healthy. What took the longest was harvesting and washing the chard. I'll be adding this to my garden cookbook for sure!
