    Chard is another of those plants where almost the entire plant, the leaves of course, and then the stalks can used similar to celery. And if I remember correctly, several cuttings can be had in one growing season. Plus, I've read that chard doesn't bolt as quickly as spinach in the heat of the summer.

    Love chard... almost as much as I do beets!! ;-)

    Very good. I skipped the basil. Just kept the chard, bacon, garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes on my plate(no red pepper for Fred). It was just delicious. Everything is better with bacon. Steaming the chard kept it vibrant and making the sauce separate kept it from getting overdone. I wouldn't do it any other way to keep the chard so nice.
