It’s a given that Swiss chard is delicious when sautéed; but pair it with the famed Fontina Val d’Aosta from the Italian Alps, and the humble green veggie becomes absolutely delectable.
Fontina Val d’Aosta is made with raw milk and aged for 6 to 9 months. It’s a pungent cheese with nutty, truffly notes and grassy aromas that are quite unique. It’s a perfect cheese for melting… and it certainly melts here, to infuse every morsel of this tart with its marvelous flavors.
For a tasty main course, serve the tart with these pan-fried smashed potatoes with fresh herbs and garlic and a simple green salad with mustard vinaigrette.
