I saw this recipe made on an Italian cooking show, it was all in Italian, but the recipe was so easy to follow I didn't need to know the language. You can use either fresh spinach, or frozen, but if you do, make sure the excess moisture has been squeezed out. I served it with roasted chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan.
  2. Add the garlic, either chopped or smashed.
  3. Cook the garlic for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add spinach and with tongs, turn constantly until wilted.
  5. Sprinkle with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  6. Enjoy!

I made this to go with some salmon I was making and had it on the side. I didn't add the nutmeg, as the dish I was having had lots of flavors in it already. Next time I will try it with the nutmeg, when I have it with something different.

I went to dinner at a restaraunt a few weeks ago that had this exact spinach underneath a fresh tuna steak. This is JUST what I was looking for! It is super easy and super healthy! I will make this many more times!!! Thank you so much for sharing! LA :-)
