Creamed Swiss Chard With Prosciutto

Makes 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8 cups chopped Swiss chard leaves
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and sauté until aromatic, about 1 minute. Increase the heat to high, and add the onion and garlic. Sauté, stirring constantly, until the garlic is aromatic, about 1 minute more.
  2. Add the Swiss chard, sautéing just until the leaves wilt, about 5 minutes. Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook the Swiss chard until it is tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Season generously with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, and stir in the Parmesan and nutmeg. Serve immediately in a heated bowl or on heated plates.
