  1. I have a couple of your cookbooks, but never tried this recipe before. We made it tonight and everyone loved it. My sons used Parmesan and my husband and I had Feta. I think I will try with the cherry tomatoes next time, as others have suggested. Definitely a keeper. Thank you.

  2. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Surprisingly filling too! I did use others folks suggestions…adding some cherry tomatoes, capers, and put it over quinoa. I love to juice too! Next time I think we’ll try over jasmine rice. Thanks so much for this amazing recipe!

  3. Easy and flavorful!

  4. Super good and surprisingly filling (although I did have 1.5 servings). Can’t figure out if I did it because I was still hungry or it was just so tasty. I will probably add a little more spinach and the tomatoes everyone is mentioning sound good, too. Another winner.

  5. Excellent dish.  Note to self for next time, crusty bread and make a bit more broth.

  6. Seal of approval from husband and me. Easy to make on a weeknight. Nutritious and enough for lunch the next day (if I can keep husband from having thirds!)

  7. This was amazing. I pretty much followed the recipe verbatim other than adding halved cherry tomatoes with the spinach and beans. A keeper and repeater!

  8. I absolutely loved this dish! I am a horrible cook and even I could make it.  Directions were very easy to follow and it came out delicious.  I also love salt and didn’t miss it at all.  I had a handful of capers left so I threw those in too but it would be just as delicious without it.  Thanks for the delicious meal! 

  9. This was really delicious! I made it with Italian herbs and Parmesan cheese. 

  10. This was really good. I skipped the sage (don’t like it) and used 2 cans of beans rather than one to make it stretch, also served with quinoa, will definitely make again the exact same way!

  11. I’m going to make this tonight in my magic cast iron pan.   I may add some white wine with the broth. I may also throw in a few pine nuts. 

  12. Highly recommend! I added some toasted pine nuts, which paired with the shrimp, feta, and spinach nicely!

  13. Love your recipes.  Just wondering if your recipes reflect the new WW Freestyle Smart Points that is rolling out this week.  Thank you.

  14. Making this tonight I think I want to add cherry tomatoes when I add the spinach and beans.. more color and flavor! And for the men of the house to make it a little more filling I think I’ll serve with some rice pilaf.. slightly higher points but yum!

  15. This recipe was a hit with the family. I’m adding it to the rotation. This is an absolutely amazing recipe and it comes together very easily.

  16. Made this tonight. Very good. Quick and easy.

  17. Peace

  18. I subbed frozen spinach and used gabonzo beans. Just what I had in the house, worked out well.

  19. So good!

  20. This is so yum! I added mushrooms and it was wonderful.

  21. Considering I've been making quite a few of your dishes, including this one twice, I figured I should start commenting on them. This dish is amazing! You really don't miss the carbs. That said, next time I make it I might serve it with some crusty bread to soak up the wonderful juices!

  22. This was great! I made it tonight and loved it.

  23. Gina,
    I am so sick of ham and turkey from the holidays, this is going to be great. I love your site and your recipes are all great. I am loosing weight and learning to love cooking again. Thanks again for all you do!

  24. Made this tonight…..added mushrooms and took liberty in putting the steps together and cooking it all at the same time. I am LazyCook.com. : ) This was absolutely delicious, enjoyed by us all. Thank you Gina, I am your loyal follower, if anything, but lazy!

  25. Could you do this with kale?

  26. This was a big hit with me and my husband, while my 11-year-old enjoyed the plain shrimp with raw spinach. (At least he ate the vegetables in some form.) Other than subbing a pinch of rubbed sage for the fresh sage, I made no changes. Served with roasted butternut squash and a mini ciabatta roll. We'll definitely be making this one again.

  27. I have to comment on this bc it was so so so good! I had to do some variations: i had no sage, so i used fresh parsley.. and I had a lot of liquid even after adding 5 cups of spinach, so i mixed about 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice into the pan to absorb some of it. It was just delicious- it felt like comfort food. I have to say, this site has never failed me and tonight was no exception. Very very good!

  28. Made this tonight ~ delish! I added snow peas (cause I love em), also did not have sage not a fave anyway…. used crushed red pepper and black pepper ~ everyone had seconds!

  29. I was so happy when I saw this recipe as prawns, feta and spinach are some of my favourite foods. I just made this and it was absolutely delicious, I didn't have cannellini beans so used butter beans instead, I ate it with some boiled rice and the leftovers will be my lunch tomorrow, can't wait. Thanks for such a great recipe Gina!

  30. Just made this tonight, delish. I substituted a simple shrimp stock I made with peelings while I prepped the other ingredients. Easy schmeasy and didn't change the points plus values. Definitely a keeper recipe. Thank you!

  31. This is my favorite dish so far! Delicious!! Thank you, Gina!

  32. I love your blog and just wanted to say that my 10-year old son, who doesn't "like" spinach or beans, devoured this recipe! Thanks!

  33. So glad you all liked it!

  34. I made this for dinner, and just finished eating. This dish is amazing. Probably one of my favorite dishes I've made of yours. Gina, thank you for your site, it's definitely helped me lose weight by eating healthier and my fiance enjoys my dinners more.

  35. Gina, this recipe was great as usual. For the past six months, I have made three of your recipes every weekend. I usually make one soup, one crockpot and one misc. my family is happy all week. I have all my coworkers making skinny everything. U r awesome. Stephanie

  36. I'm making this for dinner as we speak!
    I'm trying to keep things lower carb and was super excited to see this!

  37. Isn't that a great dish! Home Goods!!

    Glad you all liked the shrimp!

  38. Oh. My. Goodness! I made this for dinner tonight and it is AWESOME! Quick, easy, and I had most of the ingredients in my kitchen. So yummy! I'm excited to try more of your recipes! Thanks!

  39. Made this XMas Eve……Everyone LOVED it ( made it w/out sage cuz i ddnt have any)

  40. Delicious! My husband prepared and added cooked brown rice which further enhanced the taste and healthy ingredients. He also needed to add just a little more chicken broth to get the spinach cooked down. This is definitely a keeper.

  41. this is such an easy peasy dish, and yummy too!
    please
    can you share where you got the white dish from ???
    its so perfect and cozy for winter meals!!

  42. This look delicious! I love anything with white beans and spinach – such a great combo. I still have several sage leaves left in my herb garden so I my use them up for this sometime this week. Thanks for sharing!

  43. This looks wonderful. I'm just wondering if my Husband would like this.

  44. I've been so busy planning our holiday meals that I forgot to think about what we're going to eat for dinner this week. This recipe will be perfect and the best part is that I have all the ingredients on hand! Thank you and happy holidays!

  45. This looks SO good! I'm a huge fan of the feta/spinach combo, and I love that you added cannellini beans to the mix. What a great way to boost the fiber content of the dish.

  46. Definitely bookmarking this one, I need to cook more shrimp.

  47. Sure I think this would be great with chicken. Not sure how it effects the points but shouldn't be too different.

    I personally wouldn't freeze the shrimp. I'm not sure if it will reheat well.

    Hope you all enjoy!

  48. I was thinking about making this for a friend who is receiving medical care and needs meals to be made for her. Do you think this would freeze very well?

  49. Looks fantastic; shrimp and spinach are two favorites of mine. Even my husband will eat this!

  50. I am trying Filling Foods so this dish is a winner for that. I can either count the cheese or omit and count nothing!! Thanks Gina….

  51. This looks delicious – thanks for posting!

  52. Oh oh oh this really looks good! We may be having this for dinner tonight if I have / can get everything this morning.

    Thanks so much for sharing this one today

  53. I would love this, everything about it looks delicious!

  54. This looks delicious! The combination of shrimp and white beans looks to die for.

  55. Why don't you just sub. chicken and figure out the points for yourself?

  56. Gina, this looks amazing, but I am very allergic to shellfish. Do you think this would be good with chicken? How much do you think it would effect the points?

    • Shrimp is 3 oz. for 1 point . Chicken breast w/o skin cooked is 3 oz. for 2 points So you could adjust the points and give chicken a try.

  57. Oh my goodness!! This looks so yummy!! Definitely trying this for dinner tomorrow night : )

  58. I am trying oh so very hard to like shrimp…maybe this recipe will help??

  59. My husband will love this!

  60. What a nice light, clean dish! I LOVE cooking with fresh herbs…I bet this would be good with kale too!

  61. This looks so good! I love shrimp and spinach, so I can't wait to try making this
