Italian Baked Beans with Swiss Chard

I had this beautiful organic chard delivered in my Market Wagon order this week. Its getting to warm for soup, so I started searching and came up with this. I made the dish a little more Italian than it already was. I skipped the smoked turkey or ham, they called for cubed deli meat. I used hot Italian sausage instead. I started by browning the sausage in the pan then followed the recipe. I used one 19oz cans of chickpeas, and cannellini beans and for the tomatoes I used fire roasted diced. When the lot was ready for the oven I added in some good balsamic and some red wine. I skipped the last uncovered cooking part. This was gorgeous! A keeper. Next time I will used some shredded smoked turkey leg.
