  • Used regular milk, no cheese, 1 clove of garlic and whole wheat flour. Made the swiss chard palatable, almost tasty. - 8/12/10

  • It doesn't get much easier than this! I left out the gralic and used regular milk and cut the oil and Parm. in half...it was still good : ) Serving sizes are only 1/3 cup though? Why skimp on the veggies-- I think I must have eaten 3 servings! - 2/15/09

  • Quite good. Similar to creamed spinach. So if you like creamed spinach, you'll like it. Good way to get in extra vegetables. - 1/4/08
