 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           onions -- diced
    1                    green pepper -- diced
    1      tablespoon    salad oil
    1      pound         broccoli
    4                    carrots -- diced
    8      ounces        tomato sauce
    1                    bay leaf
      1/2  teaspoon      ground basil -- or 2 tsp fresh
                         salt -- to taste
    1      bunch         Swiss chard -- chopped
    2      tablespoons   fresh parsley
    2      cups          mashed potatoes
                         paprika
 
      1. Dice onion, dice pepper, peel and dice carrots, cut the broccoli 
 into flowerets and stems. For Swiss chard or spinach, wash, trim and cut 
 into bite-sized pieces.
      2. Saute onion and peppers in oil in a large skillet.
      3. Add broccoli, carrots, tomato sauce, bay leaf, basil and salt to 
 taste. Blend thoroughly. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to simmer, 
 and cook vegetables until just tender. Will take about 15 minutes.
      4. Stir in chard or spinach. Transfer to a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking 
 dish.
      5. Blend parsley into prepared potatoes; spread over top of 
 vegetables.
      6. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with 
 paprika if you wish; it adds color.
 
 Serve hot or warm.
