    Jajaja's Note:

    This dish is very soothing, healthy, and yummy. You can use any white bean in place of the cannellini beans, and canned beans would work just as well as dried (no need for soaking and cooking).

      Tomatoes plus beans make a complete protein, so I love it for that. Spinach is yummy in everything, however I left out the bread since I wanted a fast dish. It is delish with seasonings!

      I'm sorry but somehow, this just didn't make it for us. I used the bread crumbs, but they just seemed to make it grainy. The spinach needs to be chopped finely. Once done, my DH and I tasted it and could only say, "It's not very good." We added some more tomato sauce (actually some pizza sauce my DH had just made), Regiano Parmesan cheese, and Greek seasoning to the pot. Then, we pureed about half the pot. Still, no change. I put the pot into the fridge overnight knowing that some things get better after having time for the flavors to blend. I'm giving it 2 stars because with these changes, it went from "not very good" to "not too bad" but it's still not staying in the rotation.

      Healthy & delicious, even my toddler loved it. Was in a pinch and used wheat bread & frozen spinach, still turned out great.
