“I don't do well growing spinach in my summer garden (too hot, it bolts) but Swiss Chard does very well. This recipes sounds like a great way to use it! I haven't tried it yet, will this summer! From May 2007 GH. They remark that this makes a nice pasta - serve with favorite pasta & 1/2 cup cooking water.”
