    Munchkin Mama's Note:

    This is such a quick, easy, nutritious, and inexpensive side dish. I'm not a huge fan of cooked spinach, but this is tasty. From the cheap and easy cookbook.

      Mmm...I had some beautiful, locally grown spinach so I've decided to give this recipe a try. I'm glad I did, because it was a big hit. I doubled the amount of garlic (personal preference) and it was perfect. Also, the addition of lemon was a nice touch. Thank you.

      I make this same recipe often. I love the tang of the lemon, but some people don't, so I put wedges out and let others add if they wish. I do use more garlic, but I love garlic. Be sure not to burn the garlic or it gives the whole dish a strange flavor. If you have it hanging around, a few cooked, crumbled pieces of bacon strewn over the top enhances this dish to another level.
