4 small shallots, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
olive oil cooking spray
¼ cup shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese
¼ cup honey
½ tsp dried mustard


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pound cutlets until ¼-inch thick. Set aside. Rinse Swiss chard, cut stems from leaves and chop leaves and stems into 1-inch pieces, separating stems from leaves.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté carrots and Swiss chard stems 5 minutes. Add chard leaves, shallots and garlic and sauté 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Prepare large, shallow baking pan with cooking spray. Place cutlets in pan and spoon chard mixture evenly on cutlets. Sprinkle cheese evenly over chard mixture. Roll up cutlets and fasten with toothpicks. Leave seam side upward. In small dish, combine honey and mustard and baste roll-ups.

Bake roll-ups for 30-35 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees F. While roll-ups are baking, baste periodically. Remove roll-ups from oven and let rest a few minutes before servings. Serve roll-ups whole or sliced.
