Old-school Southern cooks prepare grits with an abundance of butter and cheddar. To make the dish less heavy, Grace Parisi cuts back on the cheese, drops the butter altogether and adds spinach.  Tips from the F&W Test Kitchen
3/4 cup  quick-cooking grits
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 ounces  sharp white cheddar cheese shredded (3/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups  baby spinach coarsely chopped
1/4 cup  snipped chives
1/4 cup  canola oil
2   large garlic cloves thinly sliced
1 pound  shelled and deveined medium shrimp
1/2 teaspoon  hot paprika
1/4 cup  dry white wine

In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Gradually add the grits and a generous pinch of salt. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the grits are thick and porridge-like, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper and stir in the cheddar cheese, baby spinach and chives; stir until the cheese is melted and the spinach is wilted. Cover the grits and keep warm.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil with the garlic over high heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and paprika, season with salt and black pepper and cook until the shrimp are opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the white wine and cook until the shrimp are white throughout and the garlic-paprika sauce is slightly reduced.

Spoon the grits into bowls, top with the shrimp and sauce; serve.
