Swiss Chard Lasagna

Written By Srimathi Mani on Wednesday, December 19, 2012 | 12:37 PM

As it was a very cold evening, my daughter and I decided on lasagna for dinner. Instead of the spinach I used swiss chard and was very impressed with the outcome. I loved the flavor and taste of this lasagna. It received a big thumbs up from our in house food critic, my daughter. She wanted me to post it today in my blog. This lasagna happens to be very light and less cheesy. Maybe that is why we all went for seconds. We had it for lunch and I felt that it tasted delicious. If you would like your kids to have swiss chard, maybe lasagna is the way. 



Gadgets:

Frying Pan
Spatula
Cutting Board
Knife
Measuring Spoon and Cup
Lasagna Tray

Ingredients:

Makes 12 pieces

Lasagna No Boil Sheets - 1 1/2 boxes
Ricotta Cheese - 24 tbsps
Marinara Sauce - 2 bottles
Olive Oil - 3 tbsp
Onions - 2
Swiss Chard - 2 bundles
Garlic - 4
Garlic Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt
Pepper
Cheese - (4 cheese Italian blend Cello from Costco) - 2 cups


Preparation:

1. Slice onions and finely shred the swiss chard. Heat olive oil in the pan. Add onions allow the onions to get cooked. Add salt and swiss chard. Cook until the swiss chard gets tender. Add minced garlic and pepper and cook for 3 minutes. Allow to cool.

2. Set the oven to 375 degrees F.

3. Pour some marinara sauce in the lasagna pan, just enough to roughly cover the bottom ( 1/2 cup or so). Layer the no boil lasagna sheets. Add the swiss chard mix evenly on top. Spoon in 12 tbsp of ricotta evenly so that each portion gets a tbsp. Lightly flatten the ricotta. Pour some marinara sauce and sprinkle some cheese.

4. Repeat step 3 again.  Place one more layer of lasagna sheets. Add marinara sauce and the rest of the cheese evenly. Sprinkle garlic powder ( 1/2 tsp or so)

5. Cover with the aluminum foil and place in the over for 35 minutes. At the end of the 35 minutes, remove the foil and allow for the lasagna to bake for 10 minutes, until all the cheese has melted.

6. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
