This is my go to recipe for a fast and easy meal. It's delicious and has veggies that I like.

I customized this by adding boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Delicious! In addition, instead of Parmesan, we cube up fresh Mozzarella and put it on when we wilt the spinach. One of my wife's favorite dishes.

I hardly ever cook a recipe from a can, but saw this and thought, I have all the stuff to make this. So simple and quick and tasty. I added a few capers to my dish. A keeper for a dinner on the spot.

Not really a vegetarian recipe...typically, Parmesan cheese is made with rennet (which comes from the lining of animal stomachs). If you actually care about the vegetarian part of this recipe, I suggest using a different cheese, or go with good, old-fashioned Kraft parmesan, which (according to the company) isn't made with rennet. Otherwise, this is a delicious and satisfying dish, and the leftovers are good, as well!

Loved this recipe! It's a combination of ingredients I would have never tried on my own that go together perfectly. Also warms up nicely as leftovers!

I LOVE this dish!! Its so easy AND delicious! My favorite part is the spinach and I like the walnuts crunchy to add a different texture.
