Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Swiss chard, cleaned and ends trimmed ½ pound (about 1 bunch)
Low-fat ricotta cheese 10 ounces
Parmesan cheese, shredded 2/3 cup
Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 2/3 cup
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Small yellow onions, diced 2
Garlic cloves, sliced 3
Crushed tomatoes 28-ounce can
Dried basil 1 teaspoon
No cook lasagna noodles (need about ½ box) 1 box
Cooking spray
1% milk ½ cup


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Place the chard in a large pot of boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool a bit. Squeeze out any excess water and cut the chard into large pieces.
  3. Mix chard, ricotta, and 1/3 cup of each type of shredded cheese in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté for a few minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and add tomatoes and basil. Cook for 10-15 minutes without a lid, stirring occasionally.
  5. Coat a 9x9-inch, or similar-sized, baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Layer first with the chard-ricotta mixture, then the noodles, and then the sauce. Repeat layers about 2 more times (or until sauces run out), finishing with tomato sauce on top. Add the milk around the pan’s edges and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake uncovered in oven for 30-35 minutes.
