  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter

2. In a large skillet, melt the butter on medium-high. Add the Swiss chard in batches, stirring until each batch is wilted. Cook 5 min., until chard is cooked. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Stir in the garlic and cook 30 sec. Reduce heat to medium and stir in the cream cheese until melted and combined.
3. Transfer mixture into prepared ramekins. Divide the half and half between ramekins and top each one with Parmesan. Bake 15 min., until bubbly.
