Rating: (1 rated)
  • 2 1/4-2 1/2 pounds Swiss chard or rainbow chard (3-4 large bundles) – for a quick shortcut, substitute 4 boxes spinach (10 ounces each), defrosted and wrung dry
  • Salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • 1 bulb roasted garlic, cloves squeezed from skins and pasted
  • 2 cups Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, freshly shredded

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F with a rack in the middle of oven.

Bring a large pot of water to boil.

Stem the chard, leaving the leaves whole. Salt the boiling water, add the chard and wilt – the pot will be packed at first.

Boil the chard for 10 minutes, then drain it in a colander and run it under cool water. Let the chard drain once again and squeeze out the excess liquid in a clean kitchen towel. Chop.

Meanwhile, heat the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, cook 1 minute, then whisk in the milk. Season with salt, pepper and a little nutmeg. Stir in the roasted garlic paste. Thicken the sauce to coat the back of a spoon and adjust the seasonings, to taste.

Layer half of the greens in a medium casserole (8-10” long). Top with half of the béchamel sauce and half of the cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with cheese. Bake for 15 minutes and serve.
