Swiss Chard and Sweet Pea Manicotti

Hold on to your seats people.  This recipe will take an interesting turn and end with creamy dreamy happiness.  Okay, okay.  In all seriousness, I found this recipe on the Food Network website because I got some swiss chard in my Bountiful Baskets Produce assortment one week a few months ago.  No, I didn't just make this recipe.  This comes from my archives and recipes I've forgotten about until now.

When I first saw the swiss chard, I was scared.  I won't lie.  I'd never tried it.  People were "saying things" about it that weren't too nice.  I decided to buck-up and find a recipe that looked and sounded good and use up this crazy ingredient.  What I found was this.  Swiss Chard and Sweet Pea Manicotti.  I am a forever changed woman.  No kidding.  Granted it's loaded with cheese cheese and more cheese, but it's not like I'm going to go buy swiss chard all the time and make this. We can definitely splurge once in a while with this one.  If you'd like to know more about swiss chard, go HERE.

If you're feeling in the mood for something fun and delicious and slightly different, then you're going to want to try out this recipe.  Don't let it intimidate you.  It really is VERY easy and kid-friendly.  I found all my ingredients at "Wal-martian", too.  See...EASY-PEAsey!!


  1. I am too busy LOVING my steamed swiss chard with lemon to have any left for this...although if you were to MAKE it and invite us over.....we would probably LOVE it!!!

  2. Hey, I get Bountiful Baskets, too! I never got Swiss chard though. Maybe it was before we moved here or the few weeks I was out of town in July.
    The manicotti looks de-lish!

  3. Way to step out of your comfort zone. Looks like you were rewarded for your efforts... it looks delish!

  4. Looks completely yummy and made me hungry!

  5. Wow! That looks really good!! I am very tempted to make it. If I do make it I will have to lie to my whole family about what is in it, including my hubby. It looks delicious!! Thanks for sharing it!!
