    This is a great recipe because it DOEs pack in so many different vegetables in a pasta dish. I am especially excited to see swiss chard named in a recipe, since I am a big fan... I cannot wait to try this one, though I think I will forego the feta and use parmesan instead. Thankx! - 10/25/08

    Yum...Really good! I used gluten free penne and added some basil and rosemary to what is already good flavor. Swiss and/or Parmesan is also good for a slightly different flavor than the Feta. - 8/22/08
