This was my first time making polenta and it turned out really well for me! The garlic is no joke and will make your house smell fabulous! I used half rainbow chard and half spinach, with excellent results (I left out most of the stems, uncertain of the texture I might end up with). Next time I'm not sure I'll do the sour cream, as I'm not sure what it added to the dish, with the exception of extra calories. I served this with Kittencal's Pizza Sauce and it was fantastic! Like a veggie lasagna, but lighter, and without the noodles. Our guest even licked her plate (looking sheepish, but she still did it). I take that as a compliment, and highly recommend serving this with some kind of sauce... I also think a spaghetti-like meat sauce would go really well with this dish. Thanks for posting!

Wow, wow, wow!! What an excellent way to use the fresh Chard from my garden! Think it would be a great holiday side dish. Thanks!!

This was also my first time making polenta, and it turned out perfectly. This was especially good served alongside the beef stew I made. I love the addition of swiss chard as well, as it makes the dish more nutritious. Thanks for sharing!

First time growing or eating swiss chard and DH thought it was fabulous. I can also see using spinach when all the swiss chard is gone. Loved it.

I followed JillAZ's butternut squash recipe review over to here and am so glad I did. I love this recipe! All 7 of my family, ages 8mo, 3, 8, 10, 13, 35, and37, loved it as well even though I am the only spinach eater in the family. (I couldn't find swiss chard so I substituted spinach.) It was suprisingly easy to put together. I can't wait to have it again. I even blogged about it! www.longramblings.blogspot.com

This was really yummy...I made tomato sauce to go with it which gave it just a nice amount of moisture.

Excellent dish! I used fresh spinach instead of chard as that is was I got in my veggie delivery this week. Simple to put together and is wonderful with a creamy interior and crispy top. I served with #82508 Herb-Roasted Butternut Squash and sausages for a great dinner. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

This was good. The polenta was wonderful. I am not so sure I like chard. I got some in a organic food delivery and tried it this way. I think this would work with other greens (especially spinach or arugula).
