“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).” - by MaraAllen
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir onion and garlic until the garlic turns golden brown and smells toasty, about 6 minutes. Do not let garlic burn. Pour in the cannellini beans, diced tomatoes, and carrots, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, uncover the pot, and allow the mixture to simmer until slightly thickened, 5 to 8 more minutes.
- Stir in the chicken and spinach, bring the mixture back to a boil, and mix in the escarole. Simmer until almost all the liquid is gone, about 10 minutes; turn off the heat, sprinkle with cheese, and cover; allow to stand for another 5 to 10 minutes to melt cheese.

"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..." See more gave it a nice crisp texture. Don't forget to add salt and pepper. it really needs it."
"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...." See more"
"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..." See more 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"
