This works great as a pasta sauce, or by itself as contorni for meat. You can also substitute leeks or spinach, or any green leafy vegetable (collard or mustard greens) for the chard.

3 green onions, minced, including tops
2 lb (1 kg) Swiss chard, stemmed, and cut crosswise into 1-inch strips ½ c whipping cream
