This is the freshest-tasting spinach ever! I've made this without the lemon zest (just my own preference), and personally, I can eat the whole pan myself. Fast,healthy and absolutely delicious!

Very tasty! I didn't use exact measurements on the ingredients and it was still great. I did find out that 1 bunch of spinach is equal to about 1 pound. Not sure if that will help anyone.
