Oh wow!! I love spinach, but my husband doesn't usually care for it. He was crazy about it cooked this way! The garlic and the lemon gave a great flavour but what I particlarly liked was the texture! I used spinach (bought in a bag) that had been prewashed and was very dry. I didn't add any water and it was like a cross between fresh and cooked spinach. I can't believe my husband was still talking about how good the spinach was after dinner was over! Thank you Country Lady! Now I can have spinach more often without feeling guilty that I'm subjecting my DH to something he really doesn't like!
