Penne Chard Casserole

Warm, satisfying, and nourishing, this is one of my favorite casseroles. The chard adds vitamins, fiber, and color, balancing out the richness of the cheese and sausage. Plus, it’s convenient: you can make the whole thing ahead of time and pull it out to reheat 45 minutes before dinner.

For awhile, my kids weren’t into penne, and I discovered that using other pasta shapes worked just as well. You could also swap in gluten-free pasta - just make sure you don’t cook it too long on the stove before adding to the casserole, or you’ll end up with a mushy mess.
