    Excellent. This was a quick recipe that pleased everyone for a light dinner. I used what I had on hand; substituting spinach for the chard and romano cheese for the pecorino.

      It's not everyday that I end up with swiss chard, tortellini and chicken broth in the fridge. This recipe was perfect in that regard. It was also light, flavorful and one of the quickest meals I have ever made. Heated up some french bread and was completely satisfied. Will definitely make again,

    I used 2 quarts homemade chicken stock, 20 oz bag of supermarket tortellini, and 1 bunch of Swiss Chard. Large stems removed. Cut into strips Before adding stock and tortellini, started with 1 sautéed onion and 2 diced carrots for color and flavor. Will make again. Considered but did not add a can of diced tomatoes to make more Italian. Tip: Swiss Chard cooks as quickly as spinach so add at the very end. Great color too. Also, added Romano Cheese shavings at end too since it melts.
