A very healthy recipe that bursts with flavor! This is one dish that I make, even when I'm not on a restricted diet! If you love spinach, try this out. It is wonderful with chicken or fish. Note: Please don't make this unless you love garlic, the garlic taste is what makes the dish!

A nice twist on plain spinach. I used less salt and toasted the pine nuts.

Delicious!! I added quite a bit more garlic and added a pad of butter also. Loved the pine nuts and red pepper flakes. Made for Zaar's Newest Star Tag Game 2012.

Wonderful preparation for spinach! Loved all that garlic and for me the best part was the kick from the red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
