Garlic Sauteed Swiss Chard with Romano Cheese
This Garlic Sautéed Swiss Chard with Romano Cheese recipe is a perfect accompaniment for any Italian dish. The only problem with this dish is I never make enough. My family eats so much of it, it ends up being about the same proportion as the main course. Anyways, if you love chard, you will enjoy this recipe.
3 T olive oil
1 T freshly minced garlic
1 bunch Swiss chard, stems cut out and chopped into 1/2 slices. The leaves coarsely chopped separately.
1 T butter
1/8 c Romano cheese or more to taste (you can substitute Parmesan cheese for Romano)
sea salt to taste
1. Bring small pot of water to boil. Add stems and boil for about 5 minutes (or until soft); drain.
2. While stems are boiling, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for a minute. Add the chard leaves and cook until wilted. Add cooked stems to skillet with the leaves. Stir in a tablespoon of butter. Add Romano cheese. Season with sea salt. Enjoy.
