    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Thoroughly wash and dry spinach and remove stems.
    2. 2
      (I usually use the packaged, pre-washed spinach so that I don't get too much water in this dish. Otherwise, be sure to dry the leaves very, very well.) Using half the ingredients and working in batches, heat olive oil in a large skillet over moderate heat.
    3. 3
      Saute garlic about one minute.
    4. 4
      Add spinach leaves, increase heat to high, and stir until evenly wilted, about 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add salt, pepper, and tomatoes.
    6. 6
      Cook an additional minute.
    7. 7
      Stir in grated Parmesan, remove from heat, taste, and adjust seasonings.
    8. 8
      Serve immediately.
    9. 9
      If spinach releases too much water, you can drain mixture in a colander before serving.
    10. 10
      Taste and adjust seasonings again after draining.

      I really enjoyed this recipe and my spinach-averse husband even ate a decent portion of it and liked it. I did have to drain the spinach before I served it. The leftover spinach continued to release water while in the fridge and so we threw it out because we don't like watery spinach. This is a very fast-paced dish so make sure you have everything READY to dump in the skillet. I'm not sure if my spinach was a little overcooked or not because I pressed my garlic cloves right into the skillet and I didn't have the cheese out of the fridge or the bag of spinach open. I would suggest this as a great dish to cook and eat the same day.
