Expert Tips

You can also use fresh shrimp, if you like. You'll need just over half a pound of shrimp in shells. Remove the shells and tails. Cook until shrimp are pink and firm.

Serve with garlic bread and a tossed salad made of your favorite greens. If you like, add a plate of sliced home-grown tomatoes.

The term Florentine is a reference to the cooking style of Florence, Italy. Typically, dishes with á la Florentine or Florentine in the title are served on a bed of spinach and topped with a rich, cheesy sauce. This skillet meal has the spinach stirred in at the end for an all-in-one meal!
