I got this recipe out of cooking light magazine about 4 years ago. Super fast meal for when you're too tired to spend much time cooking. I skip the step with the 10 cups of water. I normally use a prepacked container of fresh baby spinach and zap it in the micro for a few minutes. I like to have some texture and color left in my greens.
