    I love love love this recipe! I was looking around a while ago for recipes with swiss chard (I had an abundance and was getting sick of it!) and came across this. I was not sure of how it would turn out, but holy moly, it was awesome! I am making it tonight because I've been craving it for weeks! - 10/19/09

    I made this last night with onions, garlic, spinach, broccoli, and asparagus as my filling. I think next time, I will try to make this part of the dish more flavorful or experiment with other fillings. I loved the use of the polenta with the cheeses! - 5/28/09

    My husband loves this! (And so do I!) I used about two cloves of garlic (which is not in the ingredient list but is in the directions.) - 6/17/08
