Wow, this was awful. I was so excited to make this after getting some lovely chard from the farmers market. I followed the recipe exactly and it was so incredibly bland, except for the overwhelming lemon flavor which didnât seem to go at all. I added salt, an extra cup of parmesan, and some red pepper flakes, and it was still bland. We ended up dumping a jar of pasta sauce on it to make it edible, but still ended up throwing out most of it. Still scratching my head trying to figure out what went wrong.

Wow did I blow it here. I didn't notice the previous review and charged into this with gusto. I grabbed the old half container of Ricotta from the fridge and my wife went to the garden for some fresh chard. In fifteen minutes we were eating about the worst pasta dish I could have imagined. I found myself putting on more salt, Parmesan and even some lemon juice to perk it up...hopeless. BTW, this recipe came up on a search with "Kitchen Tested" as one of my criteria...huh?
