This is so good you won’t believe it.  Dad was skeptical but he loved it.

1 bunch swiss chard
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1/2 of a small onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Wash chard leaves.
Trim chard stems about 2 inches from where the leaves begin.
Separate stems from leaves.
Chop leaves and stems but keep separate.
Saute onion and garlic for about 30 seconds in olive oil and butter.
Add chopped chard stems and white wine to pan and simmer about 5 minutes.
Add chopped chard leaves to pan and simmer about 3 minutes or until soft.
Transfer with a slotted spoon to serving bowl.
Sprinkle some salt over and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
