“I have never tried Swiss Chard, but wanted to because of it's health benefits. I looked for a recipe and couldn't find one to my liking (most just called for sauteeing). Last night I made Cooking Diva's Tuscan Chicken in Lemon-Wine Sauce (Scaloppine Al Limone) Tuscan Chicken in Lemon-Wine Sauce (Scaloppine Al Limone) and she suggested serving it with a side of pasta. So, I thought, why not add the chard to the pasta, along with some canellini beans and combine that with the wonderful lemon-wine sauce from her chicken. Her chicken dish, by the way, is delicious! The result, we thought, was quite tasty!”
