It's a snap! A 10 oz pakage of frozen chopped spinach , thawed and squeezed to drain, can be substituted for fresh spinach.

I love how easily and quickly this came together. I left out the garlic and found the dish to still have plenty of flavor, although I do plan to add the garlic next time. Thanks for sharing!
