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!

Made this for Let's PARTY 2011 tag game...delicious. I followed the instructions (except cut the salt way back) and served this with Wasabi Grilled Tuna#9773 and Asian Pasta Salad#137204.

Fabulous way to enjoy my favourite leafy green. The pine nuts and garlic gave it great flavour, I didn't even bother with the red pepper flakes. I think you have to be a little cautious with the salt, I know I didn't use the full 1/2 tsp (probably a 1/4 tsp) and it ended up being just right - that's personal preference though. I used the spinach in a simple rice tortilla wrap with hummus, very tasty. Thanks Breezermom!

Loved it. Increased the garlic and spinach. Perfect instructions and taste. Will make again.

Unfortunately, this didn't work out for us. The 1/2 t salt ended up being much too much after the spinach wilted down. And the water was never absorbed. I would make again with 1/8 t salt and no water. Thank you for a good starting place Breezermom.

A great tasting, super quick to fix side dish. I skipped the pepper flakes because I paired it with a spicy chicken dish. What a lovely and easy way to get those leafy greens into your diet. Mine was ready in 5 mins!

Spinach is one of my favourite veggies and pine nuts are such a treat. I halved the recipe and only used 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Personally, I think I would skip the hot pepper flakes next time because they were a little bit too hot for me. Loved it! I served this with Mustard Garlic Pork Tenderloin and mashed potatoes. Made for Everyday'a a Holiday. Thanks! :)
