This is the spinach that I served with last nights veal. Make extra because it can be used for delicious omelets today.
Angies Fried Spinach
Eight tablespoons of olive or canola oil
Eight cloves of chopped garlic
Four boxes of frozen chopped spinach
One teaspoon of salt. Maybe more to taste
1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper. This can be increased or decreased according to your liking.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat
Slightly brown the garlic in the oil
This should be very light brown
Defrost the spinach and drain all the water by squeezing the spinach between your hands . If you don’t take the water out of the spinach you will have a green puddle in your plate. Not very pretty.
Put the spinach in the garlic and oil
This may splatter a little. This is another reason why the spinach should not have a lot of water in it.
Lower the heat to medium low and saute till the spinach is coated with the oil
Add the salt and pepper
That’s it. You are finished.
Serve as a side dish, put it in a omlette or make calzones.
