Using some of her Red Swiss Chard, Onion, and Garlic from last weekend’s bin, Bethany adapted a recipe from Epicurious and made Red Swiss Chard Cannelloni. Think of it as a fun take on Spinach Cannellonis.

  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Urban Acres Onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Urban Acres Garlic, chopped
  • 8 large leaves of Urban Acres Red Swiss Chard, remove stem and finely chop

  • 2.5 cups grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp Nutmeg
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 3 cups Tomato Pasta Sauce
  • 12 Cannelloni Noodles or Lasagna Noodles
  1. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add chard; toss until wilted, about 3 minutes. Transfer mixture to large bowl and let cool 10 minutes.
  3. Mix in ricotta cheese, 2 cups of Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and salt/pepper.
  4. Spread 3/4 cup sauce over bottom of 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish.
  5. Stuff cannelloni noodle with filling or roll filling into lasagna noodle and atttach with toothpick. Place seamside down.  Repeat filling remaining noodles and arrange in dish.
  6. Pour remaining sauce over cannelloni and cover dish loosely with foil.
  7. Bake cannelloni until heated through, about 45 minutes. Let stand uncovered 10 minutes.
  8. Top with remaining Parmesan.

Looks delicious Bethany! Thanks for the great recipe.

    Creative use of swiss chard. This opened my mind up to to many possibilities for the vegetable- what about swiss chard pesto?
