Fennel, Pepper & Swiss Chard vegetable bake

Sometimes there are those days in life when you just want a plate of healthy goodness for your dinner. This was actually inspired by an Ottolenghi instagram picture that came up recently so I thought i would create my own tiny Italian version. My friend Rob, had been partying hard at Fashion week so came over for a detox evening so I rustled this up for him with all my heart. We then continued to spend the evening watching the trashiest TV on ITVbe. Life was complete ha.
