    Made this with spaghetti squash once, and with whole wheat pasta the other time, both were excellent! Spicy sausage was great, and it's so yummy and a great way to get some chard into our meal.

    So yummy! Just made this tonight with the collard greens I got from this week's Bountiful Basket. Didn't have Italian Sausage so used Chicken and Apple Sausage we had. Everyone loved it.

    Excellent dish!!! Next time I will double the sauce. Just not enough to go around. Also, I used Kale instead of Swiss Chard (we love Kale). Just delish!

    We love this recipe and have had it nearly weekly since it was published! There are never any leftovers! We sub kale, spinach, or escarole for the chard, leave out the cream, and add a dollop of pesto sauce on the top (Costco sells a fantastic one made in Italy). Also, we use rotini, and other small shaped pasta to help gather up the sauce. We also used farrow once, in place of the pasta, and it was very good, too.

    Fast, easy and really good. I used kale instead of swiss chard, fresh spinach would be good too. Definitely a keeper in the weeknight rotation.

    Great way to use the large bunches of chard or other greens that come in our veggie box. Simple to prep, easily obtainable ingredients and quick to put together. I plan to keep turkey sausage on hand to be able to make this tasty dinner whenever. Kids loved it, too. Another plus.

    I love this recipe. I made this for myself to get me through a long week but I don't think it's going to last the first night! I'm sure I can find a friend or two to share this with if there's any left over.

    Yes! This is a flavorfully awesome yet easy to make for special or any occasion, comfort food that is a satisfying meal, or even for use as a well-deserved, as a self treat! ;-)

    This is really good. I've made it twice now with different greens (first chard and then a mix of baby salad greens), and both times with whole-grain macaroni. I also used sun-dried tomatoes as I didn't have fresh on-hand. It's quick to throw together and makes a complete meal, although it still invites a side. Even though it's a "fall" dish it can be seasonless with the abundance of greens year-round.
