This is a simple way to jazz up your spinach and went well along with our summer meal of corn on the cob and other goodies. I did have to add a touch of water, however, to keep the spinach and garlic from burning.

Really awesome! A new vegetable side dish we will be eating often! Extremely quick and easy.

simple and great, but one tsp of basil is enough, and I don't buy lite OO, so I combined 1 tsp EVOO with 1 tsp veg oil which worked fine. Thanks!
