Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup chard mixture, 1/2 cup polenta, and 1 tablespoon parmesan)

Any bitter green makes a great companion for the rich, creamy polenta, says Chiarello. Choose kale, broccoli rabe, or mustard greens in place of the chard.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pancetta in a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until crisp (about 10 minutes). Remove pancetta from pan.

Step 2

Add garlic to drippings in pan; sauté 30 seconds. Add broth and thyme; bring to a boil. Cook until mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup (about 5 minutes).

Step 3

Add chard, salt, and pepper, tossing to coat. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes or until chard is tender. Serve over Soft Polenta; top with pancetta and Parmesan.

Step 4

(Totals include Soft Polenta)
