  • Incredible!
    I used Cajun sausage, skipped the pepper, 1 cup of water instead of the broth and served it with shredded Parmesan. It was a great way to use the Swiss Chard! - 8/2/16

    Pretty darn good! I thought pork sausage seemed way too heavy so I subbed freshly made chicken sausage instead. I liked the heat of the pepper as well. Kind of a skimpy serving though. My only complaint! :) - 10/24/11

    Made this tonight (first time having swiss chard)...very yummy! Not sure your calorie counts are right though. Check the amount of sausage in the directions vs amount of sausage used in calorie count calculation - 2/27/11
