If you like a dish with more bite, use arugula rather than spinach.
You can use chicken instead of shrimp, sun-dried tomatoes instead of fresh, and capers instead of olives. Or you could add loads of parsley, zucchini or bell peppers. There are countless variations you can create depending on what you’re craving…!
