It doesn't get any simpler than sauteed spinach! When its done right I can't get enough of that garlicky goodness, when its mushy - its an inedible mess. (The key is in the squeeze! Read below) We grow loads of spinach, which requires lots of washing to get all the extra sand & grit off the leaves. 
Enjoy this 5-minute dish, again & again! 
As an old sailor used to say,  "I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eats me spinach."
