Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring 1 teaspoon salt and water to a boil. Stir in the fusilli, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes.
  3. Stir Swiss chard stems and chicken bouillon granules into pasta and water. Continue cooking until pasta has cooked through but is still slightly firm, about 6 more minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Drain pasta and chard stems.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sausage links until evenly browned and no longer pink in the center. Transfer sausage to a plate and slice.
  5. Heat butter and red pepper flakes over medium heat in the skillet used to cook sausage; cook and stir onion and garlic in butter until tender and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir sliced Swiss chard leaves and balsamic vinegar into onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until chard leaves are tender, about 5 minutes.
  7. Mix kidney beans and tomato into chard leaf and onion mixture; continue to cook for 3 more minutes.
  8. Stir pasta, chard stems, and 1/2 of the reserved cooking liquid into the vegetables. Season with salt and black pepper. If the sauce becomes too dry, add remaining cooking liquid.
  9. Transfer pasta mixture to a large baking dish.
  10. Arrange sliced sausage and crumbled feta cheese atop pasta, pressing the mixture down.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until feta cheese begins to melt, about 15 minutes. Turn on the oven's broiler and broil until cheese is browned, 3 to 5 more minutes.

Yummy! My husband hates chard but he loved this dish. I did not have chicken boullion granules so I used Swanson's flavor packets instead. Definately will make this again.

Easy dish to put together and great for when you've got lots of veggies to use - I used beet greens in addition to the swiss chard, as well as substituted baby leeks for the onions.

Delicious! I left out the onion because we don't care for it. Also I realized too late that I did not have a tomato and all I had was a can of tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano seasoning. I drained the can of tomatoes and used the whole thing and really liked the results. Everyone liked this meal, including my husband and my picky toddlers.
