This is the only way I've made spinach. We love the garlic taste so much, I double it!! Thanks for posting.

A much healthier and much tastier alternative to creamed spinach. I will be making this quite often since I don't like raw spinach. Thank you very much.

Wonderful side dish. The spinach taste comes through, but the garlic flavor is there also. Good combination. I made it exactly as written and we loved it!
