Sauteed Baby Spinach with Garlic

This wonderful side dish literally takes about 5 minutes to make & it's so healthy & delicious! In a chefs pan or a large pan with sides, saute 3 minced garlic cloves in about a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. (You don't want to brown the garlic.)
Add a pound of fresh baby spinach. It filled up this 10" chefs pan. I know it looks like a lot, but it cooks down to almost nothing!
Season the spinach with salt & pepper. Cook, over medium/ low heat, folding the spinach into the olive oil & garlic until all the spinach is wilted & tender.
Serve with a slotted spoon, the spinach renders out lots of liquid into the pan & you don't want to serve that. This is delicious as is, but some times I sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese over it while it's warm too! YUM!!
