5 Stars, this is my favorite spinach recipe as of today! I used 8 teaspoons of chopped garlic (enough to clear out the end of a cold!), the tomatoes woke up the taste, the almonds added a mellow crunch, and the parmesan cheese added to the "yum" factor. We used to drive to Sabatino's in Little Italy in downtown Baltimore MD to have "Spinach a la Ralph"; this recipe reminds me of that dish. Maybe this recipe could serve 4 vegetable-shy people, but DH and I would fight over this amount of sauteed spinach. Served with Potato Purée With Hazelnut Oil #330028 and spicy fried chicken, a yummy dinner. Thanks for posting this winner! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

Very good. Love the addition of the almonds. Increased the garlic and tomato a good deal. Will make again.

This is fabulous! I am a huge fan of spinach and ate nearly the whole batch myself. The almonds add a nice crunch, the tomato a beautiful color, and the parmesan a nice kick. Thanks for postin!
