"Super easy and quick, well balanced dish. You can do a lot with it, or keep it as is and you won't regret it. So good on a cold night. If you want a creamier sauce, omit the diced tomatoes. Use any and all vegetables you want! You can use this as a sauce to put over pasta or over rice to get a complete protein with the beans (then you can omit the meat if you want a vegetarian dish)."

1 (15 ounce) can
cannellini beans with liquid
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
diced tomatoes, drained
cooked, shredded chicken
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
shredded Pecorino-Romano cheese, or to taste
My grocery store does not carry Escarole. I spoke to the produce manager and he suggested romaine lettuce. So I added it at the end right before I melted the cheese on top. It was de-lish. The romaine gave it a nice crisp texture. Don't forget to add salt and pepper. it really needs it.
This is terrific and wonderfully filling. Substituted diced tomatoes w/chilis in tomato juice (added a nice kick), rinsed beans and discarded liquid to reduce amount of salt, plus added 1 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary.
Very good and definitely filling! I didn't have Cannellini beans so I used a can of chickpeas. Delicious, although can use some salt and pepper...Served on couscous.
This recipe caught my eye because of the ease of preparation and the use of whole, healthful ingredients. I was shopping for the ingredients when I noticed that fully cooked, flavored chicken sausages are packaged in the 12 oz. portion called for in the recipe. I'm glad I made the substitution, as I believe the final product would have been slightly bland with just chicken, even after seasoning with salt and pepper
This was good but could use a few tweaks to make it better. I'll add more seasoning next time and maybe some red wine vinegar.
Super delish! My whole family loved this! I made a couple of changes like using navy beans, green onions, & I nixed the cheese to cut a bit of the fat. I also didn't have a lot of time to cut & prepare chicken breasts, so I used a bag of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon bits. I just threw them in at the end with the escarole. I served it over plain cous cous. It was scrumptious & did not need any additional seasonings!
Pretty good. I substituted chickpeas for the cannelini, and swiss chard for the escarole, because its what I had on hand. I would definitely add some spice of some sort next time! Served it with rice. Healthy!
Yummy! My husband and 4 of my 6 kids gobbled this up! I doubled the recipe, but we had so many leftovers I probably wouldn't have needed to. It really is filling. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned and one romaine heart instead of escarole because I don't know what that is. I'm not a fan of cooked lettuces, so I probably won't do that next time and I'll add more onion and garlic. 4 stars because it's a little bland before you add seasoning. It was good and a nice break from Italian, Mexican and Chinese which we do frequently.
