When time is short, try this delicious vegetarian main dish. You can vary the recipe by using chickpeas instead of cannellini beans and grated Romano cheese in place of feta. —Janet Briggs

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) Italian diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
