A layer of refreshing lemon slices brightens every bite of this lasagna made of sweet Italian sausage and Swiss chard. Instead of tomato sauce, the dish is made with a creamy and cheesy white sauce.

    Very tasty! Great way to sneak chard into non leafy green vegetable eaters. Absolutely no leftovers with people fighting over last piece.

    My husband and I have made this twice now - as written - and loved it each time. The lemon has been the ingredient that makes it for us. I can't imagine it without. It's a good way to use some chard and while it has a number of steps nothing is particularly difficult and the dish is light. BTW the chard goes into the sauce, once the cheese, salt and pepper have been whisked in.

    Am I missing something? Where is the chard used in the recipe? In the sauce? How is it seasoned? One of the worst recipes I have ever come across. Shame on you Martha.

    My whole family loves this recipe! I have altered it just a bit to suit our taste. We didn't care for the sliced lemons so I sub for the zest of two lemons in the sauce. I also use the sweet italian turkey sausage to lighten it up just a bit. It's great to follow this dinner with the Lemon Cardamom Cake recipe!

    This was so very delicious! I used Trader Joe's brand vegetarian Italian sausage, and I substituted 2 cups of greek yogurt and one cup of heavy whipping cream for the sauce. I must admit that I liked the REALLY thin slices of lemon better than the thicker ones, so try to cut this super thin. I will definitely make this again! :)

    i did this but it seemed to make more than i could put in a 8x8 baking dish. i loved it. Next time I may try with shrimp in place of the sausage.

    I started, as I always do, with everything prepped and ready, then dutifully proceeded to layer the dish. Popped it in the oven and began to clean up - only to find I had 5 C of shard sitting on the counter. Grabbed dish out of oven, dismantled it and tried to stuff as much chard into the layers as the dish would hold - only about 3 cups. Have no idea how much time I lost of the 27 minutes. Hope it's edible.

    I used regular instead of no-boil lasagna noodles and it did not turn out properly. The sauce was too creamy and there was not enough liquid to cook the noodles.

    Made this for dinner last night. It was very good! I'm definitely adding this to my favorite recipe list.

    I don't eat wheat, so I subbed 1/8" thick slices of zucchini for the noodles, and made a no flour bechamel (basically, heating the milk and tempering an egg into it). It made this dish perfect for a spring dinner with a salad. Really, really nice!
