Follow method for making Fresh Pasta and forming pasta sheets. Cut pasta into 5x15-inch sheets and let dry just slightly, about 10 minutes. Fill large bowl with cold water. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using pasta insert, transfer pasta from boiling water to cold water. Drain. Shake excess water from pasta and lay pasta atop clean dry kitchen towels.

FOR FILLING: Place Swiss chard in large pot over medium heat. Cover and cook until chard wilts but is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; drain any excess liquid. Transfer chard to large bowl. Season lightly with salt. Set aside.

Meanwhile, combine garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon water in small saucepan and bring to boil. Cook over medium heat until garlic is tender and water has evaporated, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix ricotta cheese and garlic mixture into cooked chard in large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in eggs.

Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Line bottom and sides of 15-by-10-inch baking dish with pasta sheets, overlapping sheets slightly. Spread 1/3 cup ricotta mixture over pasta sheets. Spoon generous 1/2 cup Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce evenly over ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with generous 1/4 cup Parmigiano. Repeat layering 3 times. Cover with pasta sheets. Spoon remaining tomato sauce over, and sprinkle with remaining Parmigiano. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil atop lasagna.

Bake lasagna uncovered until top is deep golden and sauce bubbles, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven; cool slightly before serving.
