I just made this for dinner this evening. I have been making it for years. I find it easier to use the refrigerated minced garlic because I always keep a jar in the fridge. I just toss some in the skillet and saulte it in the butter and some olive oil then add the spinach. When the garlic gets a tad brown, it is crunchy and yummy. Read More

This was very tasty. I added red pepper flakes and reduced fat feta after it was cooked. Thank you for sharing! Read More

Very nice - simple, straight forward flavors. The only change I made was a personal preference, to mince the garlic. Read More

I love this and have been making it for years. It's a great way to add spinach to your diet. The only thing I do that's different is add some onion to the butter since we really love the flavor it adds. Read More

I've had this since I was a kid. I use a splash of balsamic vinegar instead of the lemon juice. I use this same method for beet greens too. Read More

We get this dish at a very expensive place we go to on special occasions. Thought I'd see if this was it. Hubby took one bite and said "Wow, this is just like Eddie's!" Love it, we'll be eating alot more of this! UPDATE: I have used frozen spinach, you just have to drain it really well. Fresh is better of course. Read More

My family has cooked this for yrs. Spinach cooked sepeate crushed garlic no salt. Any leftovers go into a pasta & white clam sauce dinner. For people who love their greens sauce is good with chopped kale beet tops & whatever. Fast easy & yummy. Read More

Excellent!! I followed this exactly! I then put the cooked, drained spinach in 4 tomato cups I had zig-zag cut around and hollowed out. I topped grated parm and warmed slightly in the oven. It was a nice presentation along side a filet. UPDATE: I have made this 5-6 times since and it is worth making instead of buying frozen! So easy and flavorful. Thank you! Read More
