This was a very tasty recipe. Great way to use chard or any greens. Lots of good veggies in here, too. Thanks!
Does this really make 11 servings??? I have three teenage sons .....
This is a great way to use extra chard from the garden! My carnivore husband didn't even miss the meat. I used garbanzo beans instead of the cannellini beans because that's what we had on hand.
This recipe is excellent! I have made it several times. I leave out the fennel seeds (because I don't have any).
Doubled the recipe and used for main dish. Substituted chick peas for cannelini beans, and it was delicious.
