  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and stir in the sausage. Cook and stir until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Stir onion and red bell pepper into sausage; cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour water into the pot; add Swiss chard, chicken bouillon, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; Simmer until vegetables are very tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle soup with Parmesan cheese before serving.

I found it was ok but don't think I would make it again.. Found it a little salty but that could have been my fault in adding too much chicken bouillon.

Different, but good. The sausage & swiss chard complement each other well. I added a jalapeno instead of the red bell pepper to give it some kick. It went great with crispy, homemade bread.
