  3. 1/2 fennel bulb, cored and finely diced
  4. 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme leaves
  6. One 2-inch rosemary sprig
  7. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  8. 1 pound Swiss chard, stems and ribs discarded, leaves chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter an 8-inch-square baking dish. In a skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion, fennel, garlic, thyme, rosemary and crushed red pepper and cook over moderate heat until softened, 6 minutes.
