Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2005


  • 1 3/4 pounds russet potatoes (3 to 4 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 scallions, white and light-green parts, finely chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 dried small red chile, crumbled
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 large bunch (14 ounces) Swiss chard, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 pound penne, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1/4 pound prosciutto, thinly sliced into 1/4-inch strips
  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet until tender, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly. Peel potatoes; discard skin. Mash with a potato masher. Stir potatoes, butter, and scallions in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Press potato mixture evenly into bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake until light golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

  2. Bring milk and cream to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in chile. Whisk in eggs, egg yolks, sour cream, Parmesan, and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot; cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden, about 2 minutes. Add chard; cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Stir pasta, Parmesan mixture, chard mixture, prosciutto, and oregano in a large bowl. Spread over crust. Bake until golden brown and set, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
