Not long after St. Patrick’s Day has passed, most people think that they’re “done” with green—but we hope that couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, coming up on March 26th we have National Spinach Day, a fun little “holiday” dedicated to this powerful, healthy vegetable. Read on to find out how you can get all the great health benefits of these leafy greens with our great spinach dishes from Casa Bellisima in New Jersey!

Pan seared salmon, shrimp, and scallops. Not seeing the spinach? Don’t worry, it’s in there! Our seafood combination combines three tasty sea creatures with roasted potato, spinach, garlic, and tomato broth, bringing you a perfect combination of the best flavors from the sea and the farm!

Chicken Palermo. This chicken-heavy dish doesn’t scream spinach from the start—in fact, many people are surprised to realize that spinach is the classic “bed” for this dish, not pasta or something else starchy. We start with farm-fresh chicken breasts and sauté them lightly with shallots, white wine, and mozzarella, creating a dish that is both indulgent and light, healthy and delicious.

Veal Paillard. This dish features spinach as a healthy bed for proteins. We take tender, natural veal and grill it, serving it up over sautéed spinach with a light garlic sauce.

Spinach side. For the true spinach lovers out there, spinach shouldn’t take a back seat! Go all out on National Spinach Day and add a side order of spinach to your meal at Casa Bellisima!
