I made Italian-Style Fish & Pasta on Spinach recipe for my family and next week you get to taste a similar recipe at your local Sams Club food demo. My recipe features Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia, Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, and Daily Chef Spaghetti that I bought at Sams Club. Want to try a new easy-to-prepare meal?

A great way to get updates on the next Sams Club food demo is by following @SamsClub on Twitter and “Liking” Sams Club on Facebook. Attending a food demo is my favorite way to discover new recipes (thru my tastebuds) and when I taste a recipe I love then I buy the ingredients for it. It’s fun to try new recipes, but it’s reassuring to know that you already like how it tastes!

What to Buy at Sams Club to make Italian-Style Fish & Pasta Recipe on Spinach #SamsDemos #cbias #shop

My recipe layers delicious ingredients to make Italian-Style Fish & Pasta on Spinach with a side of green beans. I know that dinner prep time is critical, so this recipe can be made within the time  it takes you to preheat your oven to 425 degrees and bake the Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia for 25 minutes. By keeping the ingredients separate, it’s easier to have delicious leftovers. One of the leftover meals I created was Tilapia on Spinach Salad. I know that sometimes the number of ingredients can make or break a recipe – so I’ve labeled the ingredients which I consider optional (diced tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and green beans).

I hope you enjoy my recipe and I welcome your feedback on it!

Italian-Style Fish & Pasta on Spinach
Serves: 4
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Layer spinach, spaghetti, tilapia, tomato sauce, and parmesan for a delicious and flavorful meal. Ingredients are cooked separately to give you maximum flexibility with any leftovers. Recipe adapted from Sams Club "Easy Meals for Busy Parents".
  • 4 Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia filets
  • 1 can of Hunt's Tomato Sauce (15 oz.)
  • Daily Chef Spaghetti (about half of a 16 oz. package)
  • Fresh Spinach (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herb Seasoning (oregano, marjoram, savory thyme, basil, rosemary, and sage)
  • 1 can of Hunt's Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz.) optional
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese for garnish, optional
  • Fresh Green Beans, optional
  • Olive oil (a few drops for spaghetti, a few teaspoons for green beans)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. While oven is preheating, setup a pot on the stove for spaghetti, a saute pan for the green beans and spinach, and a saucepan for the tomato sauce.
  3. Drain the diced tomatoes well and set aside
  4. Spray a baking dish large enough for four tilapia filets with olive oil (or other non-stick cooking spray
  5. When oven is at 425 degrees, start baking the tilapia for 15 minutes before rotating
  6. Add water and a few drops of olive oil to the spaghetti pot and start boiling the water
  7. After the tilapia have baked for 15 minutes, flip them over and bake another 10 minutes
  8. Add the spaghetti noodles to the boiling water, they should cook in about 10 minutes so they'll be done when the tilapia is done
  9. Start sauteing the green beans in olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes
  10. Heat the tomato sauce over medium heat and add Italian Herb Seasoning to it
  11. When you're happy with the green beans (taste one after it cools off) then you can cook the spinach in the same saute pan (it cooks very quickly, keep moving it around until completely wilted)
  12. When the tilapia is done cooking your spaghetti should be done too! Remove the tilapia from the oven, and drain the spaghetti in the sink.
  13. Mix the well-drained diced tomatoes with the cooked spaghetti noodles
  14. Assemble your dinner by layering spinach, spaghetti noodles with diced tomatoes, and tilapia. Spoon over some tomato sauce. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese if desired. Serve with a side of green beans (because they go so well with any dish that uses tomato sauce). Enjoy!

Ingredients for Italian-Style Fish & Pasta on Spinach #SamsDemos #cbias #shop

It’s quite a shock for me to return to our “Back to School” schedule. No more running to the grocery store mid-week to pick up a few things for dinner. No more lazy summer dinners that start whenever we’re hungry. I only have time to go to the grocery store once a week so I have to have a meal plan for the entire week before I head to the store. I rely on frozen foods and pantry foods because I can’t buy fresh ingredients for every meal in the upcoming week. My family loves the flavor of the  Treasures from the Sea Parmesan Encrusted Tilapia and I love that it’s a product of the U.S. It’s definitely a staple that I’ll keep in my freezer so I’m ready to answer the “What’s for dinner?” question.
