    GaylaJ's Note:

    I love this super-fast and easy side, which is adapted from Gourmet. It is also good with a little cumin added, and will handle a larger amount of spinach as well.

      Loved this side dish! I reduced the bacon and oil and don't think it suffered any loss of flavor or texture. Just delicious, even got my 11 year old non-spinach-lover to dig right in! Great!

      Great dish. Had it in a sandwich with garlic and herb cheese and soft, white bread. Yum! :)
