Sautéed Spinach

Sautéed Spinach is quick, easy and delicious.

This takes on a depth of flavor because I sauté the spinach with oven roasted garlic. I roast several dozen cloves of garlic at once and keep them on hand for vegetable sauté, homemade pizzas, or for garlic lovers, spread it directly on a toasted baguette.
