  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, separated
  • 2 Tbsp sliced garlic (from 3-4 cloves)
  • 12 oz Swiss chard, stems sliced, leaves torn into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 lb cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 Tbsp fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, or more to taste
  • 1 lb pasta
  • 2 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups grated Gruyère cheese


Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large, straight-sided skillet, melt half of butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic, chard stems, cauliflower, and sage; season with salt and pepper. Cook until garlic is golden, 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water; cover. Cook until cauliflower is just tender, 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; stir in chard leaves.
Cook pasta in a pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups water.
Add remaining butter and flour to skillet; cook over medium-high heat, whisking, until toasted, 1 minute. Slowly whisk in pasta water until smooth.
Bring to a boil; cook, whisking, until mixture coats the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low; whisk in sour cream and 1 1/2 cups cheese.
Stir in pasta and chard mixture, pour into a lightly greased baking dish, and top with remaining cheese. Transfer to oven; bake until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
