Add baby spinach and as soon as it wilts, add the beans with tomato sauce from tin and cook until beans are warm. Take skillet off heat, add Feta cheese and mix by shaking skillet a bit. The less you stir the better! Just before serving season with freshly ground black pepper to taste.

For this recipe you can either use home cooked Gigantes (giant baked butter beans in tomato sauce) or 280g (1 tin) of Greek gigantes in tomato sauce - I would recommend the Greek Paliria brand that are tasty & high quality.
