Set this beautiful chard-wrapped vegetable pie on the table and watch your guests ooh and aah!

Food writer and cookbook author Eleanora Galasso has a new collection of recipes inspired by the long and storied culinary history of Rome. Take a tour of the old and new, classic and modern, with photos, stories and dishes for every occasion and time of day.

With its exhilarating aroma and vivid flavor, this is not your usual lasagne — instead of layers of egg pasta, here we use crunchy leaves of chard, giving this dish the appearance of a beautifully wrapped present. To me, herbs make up the personality traits of a dish. I like to use sage and basil here, but you can personalize this bewitching pie with any herb you fancy. Go on, make it yours.
